Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) Passenger Notice:

Last Updated: 2:30 pm — March 12, 2020

This alert affects the following: All Routes

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
