A Philadelphia workers’ compensation judge has found an airport shuttle company liable to pay benefits to the widow of a Darby, Penn., man who contracted and ultimately died from COVID-19 in April 2020.

State Workers’ Compensation Judge Tina Maria Rago ordered First Transit Inc. and New Hampshire Insurance Co. to pay the widow of 51-year-old Sekou Kromah $270.25 weekly, equal to half of Kromah’s compensation rate, dating back to April 5, 2020, plus 10% statutory interest and $4,643.70 in litigation costs.
