TVT’s COVID-19 Response
Clean and Safe!
Following health guidance from the CDC, Tri-Valley Transit STRONGLY ENCOURAGES everyone to wear masks while on TVT services or in our facilities. However, TVT cannot require that masks be worn at this time due to a recent Federal court ruling. We will continue to follow all federal and state requirements for public transit and adapt to any future changes.
TVT remains committed to everyone’s health and safety and continues to implement the following measures:
- All TVT Vehicles and facilities are cleaned and disinfected frequently according to VT Department of Health and Centers for Disease Control guidelines.
- All TVT staff and volunteers are asked to stay home if not feeling well or showing symptoms of COVID-19.
- Physical barriers are installed behind each bus seat.
- Some windows are left open to provide ventilation. Please dress warmly.
- Masks and hand sanitizer is available on all buses and volunteer driver vehicles
- Drivers are equipped with Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) and trained to safely provide loading and securement of wheelchairs on all buses.
- All TVT bus routes are FARE-FREE until further notice to reduce risk of transmission.
How You Can Help
- Wash your hands frequently with soap and water. If soap & water are not available, use a hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol.
- Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands.
- Stay home if you are sick, except to get medical care.
- Wear a mask when riding transit. It’s a federal requirement.
Thank you for your cooperation with our efforts to help keep our drivers, riders and communities safe and healthy!
