COVID-19 (2019 Novel Coronavirus)
COVID-19 (Coronavirus) is a new virus that has caused an outbreak of respiratory illness in Wuhan, Hubei Province, China. It has spread to other areas of Asia, the Middle East, South Korea, and Europe. Symptoms of this virus are similar to influenza, most commonly causing fever, cough, and shortness of breath. While this virus can cause severe illness or even death, many cases have been mild, and some of those infected never experience symptoms.
What are NVTA and Vine Transit doing to prevent the spread of COVID-19?
The heath and safety of our riders our number one priority. Our fleet of buses and paratransit vehicles have always been subject to a nightly cleaning routine that includes wiping down of all touchpoints. In the wake of COVID-19 outbreak, we have added additional time onto the nightly cleaning routines to ensure that each vehicle is adequately sanitized for service the following day. Additionally, we have ordered hand sanitizing kiosks to be placed at the Soscol Gateway Transit Center near the ticket office and inside the main lobby of the building. It is important to note that there are no confirmed cases of COVID-19 in Napa County.
What can you do to prevent the spread of viruses like COVID-19 and the common flu?
- Wash your hands with soap and water (for a minimum of 20 seconds)
- Use hand sanitizer if you do not have access to soap and water
- Cover that cough! (cough into your elbow or a tissue, and discard of the tissue immediately)
- Avoid those who are sick / Stay home if you are ill
