Skagit Transit's Response to COVID-19

Dear Riders,


Skagit’s Management Team has been working closely with the Skagit County Health Department(http://www.skagitcounty.net/Department/Health Diseases/coronavirus.com) and following their recommendations.


Skagit Transit priorities during this incident are:

  1. To protect the health and safety of our community, including our riders and employees.
  2. To provide safe, reliable, and friendly public transportation service.
  3. To take a science-based approach to decisions related to changes to our service or our ways of conducting business.

With the State of Washington, declaring a State of Emergency that could last for an extended period of time. We encourage all community members- including employees and riders-to please continue to practice the Health Departments recommendations for individuals.

There are to:

>Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds.

> Avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth with unwashed hands.

> Avoid close contact with people who are sick.

> Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue when you cough or sneeze. Throw the        tissue in the trash and wash your hands.

> Clean and disinfect objects and surfaces.

> Stay at home and away from others if you are sick.

Skagit Transit will continue to take extra measures each night to disinfect and sanitize our buses, paying special attention to all the surfaces people touch with their hands.
