Metro Warns Paratransit Riders of Tuberculosis Risk

Some customers of MetroAccess, a door-to-door bus service for people with disabilities, may have come in contact with a driver who tested positive for tuberculosis, agency officials said today.

Metro has been working with the District's Department of Health and sent a letter last month to 762 customers considered to be at risk, the agency said.

Riders who are concerned about possible exposure can contact the city's TB Control Program at 202-698-4040.

The driver is undergoing treatment and has been pulled from duty.
