Brampton Transit is warning riders that service may be affected and cancellations may occur due to a COVID-19 investigation on Tuesday.

PPH also said all operators should wear medical grade masks.

Some drivers may be required to self-isolate, which is why service could be affected, Brampton Transit said.
