FEDERAL MASK MANDATE FOR PUBLIC TRANSPORTATION REMAINS IN EFFECT.

Proclamation 20-25.13 – Healthy Washington

UPDATE MAY 2021 – Governor Inslee’s extension provides that all counties are in Phase 3 as of May 18, 2021 incorporate the new CDC face covering guidance, adopted by the Governor on May 13, 2021, which generally provides that fully vaccinated individuals are not required to wear a mask inside or outside, except in certain locations (health care settings, correctional facilities, homeless shelters, schools and PUBLIC TRANSPORTATION).

Central Transit will continue the following actions:

  • Mark off seats immediately behind the operator and seats throughout the bus to encourage social distancing.
  • Clean and disinfect buses to include not only daily cleanings but also disinfecting throughout the day when buses arrive at transit stops, with a focus on “high touch” areas such as handrails and grab bars.
  • Provide drivers with disinfecting wipes, gloves, masks and hand sanitizer.
  • Riders will be encouraged to:
    • Wear a mask
    • Use open seats
    • Practice good hygiene, i.e. cover coughs and sneezes
    • Not to ride the Transit System if not feeling well
