PITTSBURGH (Newsradio 1020 KDKA) – A sixteenth Port Authority employee has tested positive for COVID-19.

The employee is an operator and works out of the Port Authority’s garage in Collier, marking the first COVID-19 case from the Collier garage.

Their last drive was on Wednesday, June 24.

Port Authority mobilized a maintenance crew to perform a deep cleaning of the Collier garage and the buses that the operator drove. These are added on measures to the cleanings that are being done daily.

The employee has been recovering at home since then and believes to have contracted COVID-19 while traveling out of state.
