Covid-19 Public Information

Metro continues to actively respond to the Covid-19 public health emergency, taking all appropriate measures to protect the health and safety of our frontline colleagues, our customers, and the community at large. Beginning with the first reported Covid-19 case involving a Metro employee on March 16, Metro has worked to be as transparent as possible, providing specific details on each case as permitted by health privacy law and our own obligations to employee confidentiality. 

Following the 100th reported Covid-19 case, Metro has streamlined its public reporting to a provide a continually updated snapshot of case numbers. Metro's commitment to fully and appropriately responding to each case -- including sanitizing and disinfecting workspaces, contact tracing and quarantine -- has not changed.

Covid-19 case data was last updated Wednesday, 27 May, 2020

 

  • Metro only reports confirmed cases involving our employees. Contractors and members of the general public are not included in Metro's public reporting of COVID-19 cases. 
  • For Metro's reporting purposes, a case is considered "confirmed" upon receipt of documentation from public health authorities or an employee's medical provider.

 


Ridership Monitoring

The table below shows daily updates on preliminary rail and bus ridership starting March 2, 2020. Ridership is compared to the equivalent calendar day in 2019. This information is subject to re-statement as late data emerges and as we seek the best method to measure ridership in a rapidly-changing situation. Metro reserves the right to restate this data, and the information is not suitable for auditing or financial reporting purposes.
