METRO Encourages Riders to Wear Face Coverings

METRO continues to put safety first, as always, in response to COVID-19 (the coronavirus). Posters are going up all across the system reminding riders and everyone in the community to protect themselves and others by wearing face masks.Safety Remains Priority #1 in METRO’S Response to COVID-19

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has acknowledged face masks could provide some benefit in preventing the spread of the disease.

Even more cleaning teams are on the job now disinfecting surfaces frequently touched by the public. This additional staffing allows METRO to go beyond its usual, rigorous daily cleaning and provide extra midday cleanings at transit centers.

METRO President & CEO Tom Lambert shares the Authority’s commitment to everyone in the region as we work together to care for each other and ourselves. He also encourages riders to wear a face covering and only take essential trips.
