We want to update you on what the latest developments mean for riding transit. We continue to follow, and encourage you to as well, the advice of the Oregon Health Authority. They have not recommended we limit any transit service. Like us, health experts understand transit is vital to the community and many people are dependent on our services to get where they need to go. While many events and other social gatherings may be canceled, people still need to get to work, social services, and loved ones. We take this responsibility very seriously.
We continue to clean our vehicles with disinfectant nightly. Just remember that these surfaces are only clean until someone touches them or coughs/sneezes nearby. Preventing the spread of COVID-19 is a team effort, so please follow the recommendations of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC):
Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after going to the bathroom, before eating, and after blowing your nose, coughing or sneezing. Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands. Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash. Stay home when you are sick.
