Coronavirus Preparedness

El Dorado Transit has been monitoring the Coronavirus (also known as COVID-19) since the initial outbreak weeks ago and is in communication with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the California Department of Public Health (CDPH) and El Dorado County Health and Human Services.

According to the California Department of Public Health (CDPH), while the Coronavirus has a high transmission rate, most people who become ill from the Coronavirus recover on their own. Some people, particularly those with underlying health problems, the elderly or those with severe symptoms, may require more intensive medical care.

Steps El Dorado Transit is Taking:

To help address the potential spread of the Coronavirus and other diseases, El Dorado Transit has taken the proactive measure to increase scheduled vehicle cleaning to include the nightly disinfection of buses that were in service that day as well as cleaning throughout the day. We will continue to monitor the situation and adapt or add to these efforts as recommended by the CDC, State of California or El Dorado County.

Current Prevention Tips:

We are urging passengers and employees to proactively protect themselves and others. If you use our bus or van services, please do your part to help protect our operators and other passengers. Please observe social distancing measures and follow the guidance to stay six feet apart from our operators and fellow riders while boarding and riding.

The CDC recommends the following personal proactive steps to prevent the spread of all respiratory diseases like the Coronavirus:

  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick
  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash
  • Avoid touching eyes, nose or mouth with unwashed hands
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces
  • Stay home when you are sick, except to get medical care
  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds
