Employee COVID-19 cases will no longer be reported on octranspo.com
OC Transpo is no longer able to provide details on octranspo.com of COVID-19 cases among its staff. The public health situation in Ottawa is evolving quickly with the highly transmissible Omicron variant having a significant impact on the community and the health system. As of December 31, 2021, all publicly funded PCR testing is limited to high-risk individuals and employees who work in high-risk settings only. All other individuals with symptoms consistent with COVID-19 have been asked not to seek testing, to presume they are positive, and to follow provincial isolation and/or self-monitoring guidelines. Given that most City of Ottawa employees are not currently eligible for PCR testing, it is no longer possible to accurately report the number or details of confirmed positive COVID-19 cases.
