CBSA employee at Toronto airport tests positive for COVID-19
The Canada Border Services Agency has confirmed that an employee working at Pearson International Airport has tested positive for COVID-19. The employee is now in isolation at home and the station where the employee worked has been sanitized.
“We can assure you that the employee is in isolation at home and following direction from local health officials,” Ashley Lemire of the CBSA said in a statement to CP24.
Lemire said the location and time of infection are unknown at this
time. She said the agency is proactively notifying all employees who
have had contact with the individual.
“Employees who may have been in contact with the infected individual
have been asked to self-monitor for symptoms and to contact public
health for direction. These employees may also be instructed by public
health to self-isolate and remain at home for the recommended period.”
CBSA is also taking steps to clean the location where the officer worked, Lemire said.
