EVANSVILLE, Ind. (WEHT) — The City of Evansville says a Metropolitan Evansville Transit System (METS) dispatcher notified them they tested positive for COVID-19.

The Vanderburgh County Health Officer said METS employees and riders should be at low-risk of contracting the virus because the dispatcher has been away from work for more than a week and worked in a nonpublic section of the METS facility.

METS says they continue to add extra disinfecting cycles to all buses and facilities during operating hours.
