Jefferson Transit COVID19 Response Updates

Update Effective June  9, 2020 Riders Encouraged to Wear Face Coverings

 

On May 28, 2020 Public Health Officer Tom Locke issued a masking directive requiring all individuals in Jefferson County to wear face coverings over their noses and mouths when they are at indoor and outdoor public locations and cannot maintain a 6-foot distance from others.

 

Jefferson Transit encourages riders wear a face covering to help cut down on potential exposure to the COVID-19 coronavirus and to protect everyone who depends on our transit system for essential rides.  Not everyone will be wearing a face mask for health reasons , personal choice or political choice.  Riders are urged to focus on their own masking choices.  More information on masking can be found at the Jefferson County Public Health website.

Jefferson Transit, COVID-19 Monitoring- Limiting the Spread of Coronavirus

We understand with the recent outbreak of the coronavirus people may be feeling anxiety and concern about riding public transportation.  Jefferson Transit is taking steps to limit the spread of coronavirus through its operations.  An environmental services company has been contracted to perform decontaminate fogging in the fixed route coaches.  All other passenger vehicles will be disinfected by hand as they return from service with an antiviral solution that kills coronavirus.  Date log trackers have been established to monitor the frequency of fogging and other cleaning services performed on each vehicle individually. For more information visit: https://benefect.com/ca/products/decon-30/

Jefferson Transit has supplied its front-line staff with gloves and sanitizer wipes to reduce their risk of infection from germs.

Posters from the Washington State Department of Health on How to Stop the Spread of Germs have been posted in shelters and on buses.

Jefferson Transit continues to monitor the alerts from the Jefferson County Public Health and encourages our customers to follow the directions of public health officials.

We encourage our customers to follow the directions of public health officials including frequent hand washing, covering your cough and sneezes, and avoiding touching your face. We ask that all riders take the advice of health authorities to stay home and avoid public places if you or someone you live with are sick, especially if there are symptoms such as a fever, cough or other respiratory symptoms.

Our top priority is to help support the public and our employees in staying healthy and safe. Thank you for partnering with us to help prevent the spread of illness.
