Essential Trips COVID-19

Posted on: April 7, 2020

Humboldt Transit Authority continues to closely monitor the Coronavirus Disease 2019 (also known as COVID-19), staying in contact with the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the County of Humboldt Public Health Department.

We understand how news of the virus is causing stress and anxiety, especially as it relates to travel and public spaces. We cannot stress enough how important it is for individuals to take precautions and responsibility for their own well-being to help slow the spread of COVID-19.

Any public space creates an opportunity for exposure to respiratory viruses, which is why it is important to review the best way to prevent infection. We encourage all passengers to wear a mask and gloves while riding the bus. Of course, avoiding exposure is the primary way.

Stay safe and healthy. Please practice hand-washing and social distancing.
