A Brampton Transit driver tested positive for COVID-19 this week, affecting four bus routes across the City of Brampton.

The city revealed that the driver was associated with four routes during the 14-day period prior to March 23, and is now off work in isolation.

The routes affected include the 11, 51, 53, and the 57. All routes run along Steeles Avenue in and out of Brampton Gateway Terminal. The driver was working March 10-13.

The City of Brampton and Peel Public Health are still investigating to get a better understanding of timing and the level of contact with the public.

As of now, Peel Public Health is advising all riders who travelled on these routes to self-monitor their symptoms and contact a doctor or Peel Region Health if serious symptoms occur. Peel Health can be reached at 905-799-770.
