EVANSVILLE, Ind. — A Metropolitan Evansville Transit System (METS) dispatcher has tested positive for COVID-19, according to a release from the city. The dispatcher notified the City they tested positive.
The Vanderburgh County Health Officer said METS employees and riders should be at low-risk of contracting the virus because the dispatcher has been away from work for more than a week, according to the release.
That employee also worked in a nonpublic section of the METS facility, city officials said.
The transit system continues to add extra disinfecting cycles to all buses and facilities during operating hours.
Cycles are added at 10 a.m., 3 p.m. and 8 p.m., in addition to daily disinfecting procedures at the end of operating hours.
Vanderburgh County had two additional cases confirmed, according to the state’s dashboard. It is unclear if this case is among those two cases.
