    Washington County Transit Response to COVID-19
    Washington County Transit Statement on the COVID-19 Pandemic
    The safety of or riders is our top priority. Washington County is working with our service provides and the Washington Ozaukee County Public Health Department to ensure the risk of spreading the COVID-19 virus through the use of the Shared Ride Taxi Service and Washington County Commuter Express (WCCE) Bus is minimized.
    The spread of respiratory diseases can be minimized by:
    • Keeping surfaces clean - the interiors of our taxis and WCCE buses owned by GoRiteway are cleaned at least once per day. All taxi drivers have EPA recommended disinfecting wipes in the vehicles for ongoing cleaning while in service, and GoRiteway has implemented additional preventative cleaning measures.
    • Hand sanitation
      • The CDC recommends washing your hands for 20 seconds with soap and water. Please check out When and How to Wash Your Hands from the CDC .
      • Alcohol based hand sanitizer can be used if washing facilities are not available. Shared Ride Taxi vehicles have hand sanitizer available for all passengers to use. WCCE buses have hand sanitizer available in the onboard restroom.
    • Self-quarantine - If you are sick, please stay home. Drivers and staff will be asked to stay home if they are sick.
    • Cover your cough - Cough or sneeze into a tissue or your elbow. If you must go out when sick, please wear a mask to minimize transmission to others in the community. Due to the high number of vulnerable riders on Shared Ride Taxi, passengers who are coughing may be asked to wear a mask during service.

    In addition, drivers will be encouraged to increase ventilation in vehicles, when the weather permits.
