On April, 13, 2020, the Sonoma County Health Officer issued Order C19-07 (effective Friday, April 17), that states that persons shall wear facial coverings in the following situations:
Before they enter any indoor facility besides their residence. Examples: grocery stores, laundromats/drycleaners, work facilities, post office, etc.
In any enclosed open space. Examples: outdoor work sites, construction sites, taxis/rideshares, or buses.
When outdoors if the person is unable to maintain a six-foot distance from another person at all times. Examples: Farmer’s market, pumping gas, drive thru/delivery/carry out/curbside pickup, etc.
All Sonoma County Transit and Sonoma County Paratransit passengers will be required to wear a face covering in order to comply with Health Officer Order C19-07. As provided by the Order, a governmental entity, business owner, or operator may, to the extent authorized by law, refuse admission or service to any customer or visitor who fails to wear facial coverings. Compliance is necessary to protect the health and safety of drivers and passengers.
“Facial coverings” means any fabric or cloth that covers the mouth and nose. The facial covering can be made using household items (including scarves, bandanas, t-shirts, sweatshirts, towels, turtlenecks, or other fabric), can be sewn by hand, or factory-made. Facial coverings should not be placed on children under age 2 or on anyone who has trouble breathing or is otherwise unable to remove the mask without assistance.
On March 2, 2020, the County of Sonoma declared a local Public Health Emergency to respond to novel coronavirus (COVID-19). Sonoma County Transit is closely monitoring the novel coronavirus outbreak, preparing for potential spread of the virus, and is following local, state and federal guidelines in taking precautionary measures to protect passengers who rely on local public transit services. To date, there has been no change to the level of transit services provided.
All Sonoma County Transit and Sonoma County Paratransit vehicles used to transport the public are cleaned daily. Interior surfaces that passengers are likely to touch are wiped down with a disinfectant each day. This includes handrails, stanchions, grab-bars, armrests and fareboxes. Buses that return to the yard mid-day are cleaned and disinfected prior to returning to service later in the day.
According to the Center for Disease Control, the immediate risk posed by COVID-19 to the public remains relatively low. The best way to prevent the spread of COVID-19 is to practice good hygiene and take the following precautions:
– Wash hands frequently for 20 seconds with soap and water
– Use hand sanitizers when soap and water are unavailable
– Avoid touching your face, nose, eyes, and mouth
– Cover your cough or sneeze
– Stay at home if you’re feeling sick
