CLEVELAND — Two Greater Cleveland Regional Transit Authority employees have tested negative for the coronavirus, officials said Tuesday.

The two were showing symptoms of the virus after coming back from cruises, but have instead been diagnosed with the common flu. They remain on paid sick leave for the time being.

A third employee who also came into contact with a COVID-19 patient on a cruise was also notified, but has not tested and has shown no symptoms. He will continue with a 14-day quarantine, however.

RTA remains in service during the coronavirus pandemic, although ridership is likely to decline as more people practice social distancing.
