Tupelo Transit driver tests positive for coronavirus, service temporarily shut down

Tupelo Transit has temporarily shut down its services after a driver tested positive for the coronavirus.

City leaders announced that shutdown earlier today but what does this now mean for residents.

Wtva's kayla thompson spoke with tupelo's mayor and joins us live with how long it may stay that way if you wait at the bus stop... the transit won't be rolling by for at least 2 weeks.

Servpro crews were at the transit station cleaning vans and buses today.

The city decided to stop the transit after a driver tested positive for the coronavirus on saturday the 28th.

His last day was monday the 23rd.

Anyone riding the transit during that time has been notified and mayor shelton says the city made the decision to stop the transit... to stop the spread.

Transportation is a essential business and what we've done is inconsistent with the governors executive order but we've got to protect the people here and keep them safe.

The system will stay closed until april
