Heads up Alta Vista
Transit Customers

If you were on transit on July 27-28 on the following routes 44, 48, 49 you may have been exposed to COVID-19.

On August 10th, OC Transpo received confirmation that an OC Transpo operator has tested positive for COVID-19. The employee’s last day of work was July 28 and they have continued to self-isolate at home since that time. To protect the privacy of the individual, we will not be releasing their name.

If you have concerns, please call Ottawa Public Health at 613-580-6744 to speak to a public health nurse or visit their website to learn more.

Important note: The memo we previously circulated on social media originally indicated that the operator drove buses on July 26, 27 and 28. Due to an administrative error, the memo should have read that this was the operator’s schedule on July 27 and 28. The operator was not at work on Sunday, July 26.

The employee was onboard five buses on the key dates, serving the following routes:
