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.
