In response to concerns regarding COVID-19, also known as the coronavirus, Danville Transit has provided drivers with disposable gloves and anti-bacterial wipes. In addition, the transit system disinfects each bus placed in service on a daily basis. Drivers are instructed to wipe down frequently touched surfaces before starting their run. This cleaning and disinfecting process will remain in place, enhancing the regularly scheduled bus cleaning activities, until further notice.
While cleaning surfaces is one important part of controlling infections, personal protection is also very important. We recommend that our riders follow the CDC guidelines for personal protection, which includes everyday actions to help prevent the spread of respiratory diseases, such as avoiding close contact with people who are sick, staying home when you are sick, avoiding touching your eyes, nose and mouth, and properly washing your hands frequently.
