Today, KFL&A Public Health confirmed that a recently diagnosed COVID-19 positive case was a passenger of a Megabus route between Kingston and Pearson International Airport in Toronto.

KFL&A Public Health says it is unable to contact some of the passengers who may have been exposed and is therefore reaching out to the general public in the hopes they can connect with the remaining passengers for contact tracing.

According to KFL&A Public Health, passengers who may be affected took the following routes:

November 14, 2020
Departure: Kingston Bus Terminal 12:30 p.m.
Arrival: Toronto Pearson International Airport 4:00 p.m.

November 17, 2020
Departure: Toronto Pearson International Airport 7:00 p.m.
Arrival: Kingston Bus Terminal 10:30 p.m.

KFL&A Public Health is asking anyone who was on either of these bus routes to self-monitor for symptoms of COVID-19. If a passenger becomes symptomatic, they are urged to book an appointment for testing at their local assessment centre.

The COVID-19 assessment centres in the KFL&A region are open daily and appointments can be booked online or by phone.
