The driver was not identified but Michael McMillan, president of the Amalgamated Transit Union Local 1300, said MTA Administrator Kevin Quinn told him the woman worked out of the Eastern Division, on Eastern Avenue. The route travels around the city and into the surrounding county.
The Maryland Department of Transportation MTA said it’s reopening Friday after notification from local and state health officials, along with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention guidelines, that it could resume regular operations.
The agency said it was first notified about the bus driver’s positive COVID-19 test on Tuesday. The person was last said to be at work on March 19, MDOT MTA said.
The Baltimore City Health Department and the Maryland Department of Health conducted an investigation and notified MDOT MTA that because the operator was not at work after the onset of their illness, the Eastern division could resume operations.
