| "Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) is a respiratory illness caused by a virus called SARS-CoV-2. Here’s what we currently know:
The main way the virus spreads is from person to person through respiratory droplets when people cough, sneeze or talk.
You may also be able to get COVID-19 by touching a surface or object that has the virus on it, and then touching your face, mouth, nose, or eyes.
The virus may be spread by people who do not have symptoms.
COVID-19 can sometimes cause serious health problems. People at increased risk for severe illness include:
- Older adults
- People of any age who have certain underlying medical conditions
As a bus transit employer, your workforce might come into contact with the virus when
- In close contact (within about 6 feet) with other people at the worksite, which can include passengers, coworkers, transit station workers, and maintenance workers.
- Touching or handling high-contact surfaces and equipment, and then touching their face, mouth, nose, or eyes."
