RICHMOND, Va. (July 27, 2020) – GRTC detected one new positive case of COVID-19 among the workforce at its fourth on-site testing event on Thursday, July 23. Case #17 was last on duty at GRTC on July 23 and has been quarantined from GRTC with very mild symptoms. This employee has no public-facing service functions.

With each positive case, GRTC continues to proactively identify any likely contacts to be notified, quarantined, and tested in accordance with guidance from the Virginia Department of Health. The full list of confirmed cases is available online.

GRTC will continue to host more voluntary, on-site, free COVID-19 testing events for staff, conducted by SecureHealth, a regionally owned and operated urgent care provider. On-going and repeated testing will remain an important tool to aid in early detection of COVID-19 in the workforce for asymptomatic or pre-symptomatic infections.
