BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – Space Coast Area Transit Director Scott Nelson issued the following message to riders in regard to COVID-19:

You are all following the news about the spread of the Coronavirus.

There are no confirmed cases in Brevard County at this time. But it is serious and we are taking precautions to keep you safe.

We are currently operating on our normal bus route schedules. We are mindful that public transportation is one of the areas where illness can spread because of the proximity of people.

On March 3 we directed our shop to start wiping down the rails and surfaces on the buses at night with disinfectant. We posted hygiene notices on the buses for the riders.

The drivers carry cans of spray disinfectant and paper towels on the bus to keep areas clean. Rubber gloves are available for the drivers. We are pursuing getting disinfectant foggers for the buses.

At Cocoa Terminal several months ago we started using a stronger disinfectant cleaner on our public restrooms.

Now we have increased the frequency of cleaning the restrooms. We also installed hand sanitizer dispensers for the public and our employees.

In the meantime we ask you to follow hygiene guidelines:

• Carry strong hand sanitizer and use it often.
• Wash hands frequently, for at least 20 seconds.
• Don’t touch your face.
• Avoid close contact with people if possible, and stay home if sick.
• Sneeze or cough into a tissue or your sleeve, not the open air or into your hand.
• Don’t shake hands, use fist or elbow bumps instead.

We are receiving briefings from the County Emergency Operations Center and other sources.

The situation is evolving and we will respond to changing conditions and directives. If the illness spreads and people get sick then we are prepared to take further measures.

We appreciate you riding with us and want to do all we can to keep you safe.

– Space Coast Transit Director Scott Nelson
