This is the fourth confirmed case of the virus on Brampton Transit, just two days after the third case was reported.
The final day that the transit operator worked was Tuesday, April 7 on Route 23 Sandalwood.

People who travelled on the affected bus on the above day who are feeling well and have no symptoms should continue to go about their daily routines and not call Public Health, the city advises.
Those who do develop symptoms should call Public Health or, if emergency medical assistance is required, call 911.
“Peel Public Health also indicates that there is no additional risk on a public transit bus than there would be in the general community,” the city added
The city says it is continuing to work closely with Peel Public Health on this and all COVID-19 cases.
