Public health looking for users of Greg’s Taxi service


Lambton Public Health is looking for people who may have used a Sarnia taxi service after one of the drivers came down with COVID-19.

Officials say if you travelled with Greg’s Taxi Service on March 11 from 5:00am to 5:00pm and/or March 12 from 7:30am to 5:30pm and your trip was more than 15 minutes, you should contact Lambton Public Health.

Local health officials want to investigate the level of risk for each interaction and give advice on whether you need to be tested.

The health department is taking steps to work with the company to collect information about its passengers’ trips for the days in question, but not all contact information is available.

“It is difficult to trace this person’s close contacts because of the nature of the taxi-cab industry, and we know that this taxi driver would have been in a confined space with members of the public while operating the taxi,” said Lori Lucas, Supervisor of Health Protection.

“These reasons make it imperative that we release these details to the public, so that we can speak with anyone who used this service and give them the best guidance possible.”

Public Health can be reached at 519-383-8331.
