At least 50 Metropolitan Transportation Authority employees have died from coronavirus, MTA Chair and CEO Pat Foye said in a radio interview on WBCS 880 this morning.
At least 5,200 of 25,000 MTA employees are under quarantine — down from 6,000 as previously reported by the MTA, he said.
Nearly 1,900 employees have tested positive for Covid-18, up from 1,571 people, as previously reported.
Ridership continues to decline, Foye said. As of Thursday, New York City subway ridership is down 93%, Long Island Rail Road is down 93% and Metro North is down 95%.
Bridge and tunnel traffic is down by about two-thirds.
