The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) developed interim guidelines for mass transit administrators to ensure the prioritization of health and safety of their employees and passengers.
If you commute to work or use public transportation to run essential errands, here are some of the things that you should be able to see from your local transit provider:
- There should be physical barriers and other measures to enforce social distancing for both employees and passengers.
- There should be notices and signage communicating COVID-19 prevention measures (for example, public information regarding hand washing, wearing personal protective equipment (PPE), and maintaining social distancing).
- There should be increased measures to intensify cleaning and disinfection of frequently touched surfaces.
- There should be measures for you to reduce exposure by contact through the use of contactless payment and no-touch doors and trash cans.
These are some of the measures mass transit administrators are taking to ensure your safety while using public transportation for work or essential errands.
