What is COVID-19?
Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) is a respiratory illness that was first detected in Wuhan, China, but is now in several other countries including the United States. Its symptoms include fever, cough, and shortness of breath.
The virus is believed to spread like the flu when an infected person coughs or sneezes.
 
How does COVID-19 spread?
Current information indicates that it is thought to spread by:
·       Through respiratory droplets produced when an infected person coughs or sneezes
·       Between people who are in close contact with one another (within about six feet).
·       It might be possible that a person can become infected by touching a surface or object that has the virus on it and then touching their own mouth, nose or possibly their eyes (more research is pending).

 

What is the Breckenridge Free Ride doing to prevent the spread of COVID-19?
BFR vehicles (especially high touch areas) are cleaned and disinfected DAILY with EPA recommended products. 
Drivers are educated on how to prevent the spread of germs and diseases like COVID-19.   
Information is shared with our riders on how to prevent the spread of germs and diseases.
 
How can I protect myself from COVID-19?
·       It is critical to follow the precautions being emphasized by health authorities.
·       Among the most important is staying home and avoiding public places if you experience symptoms.
·       Remember to cover your mouth/nose (with your arm or tissue) when coughing and sneezing.
·       Avoid close contact with people who appear to be sick. We know it can be difficult on the bus, but remember it’s not rude to get up and move if you need to.
·       Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. If you do not have access to soap and water, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol concentration.
Together we can help control the spread of this and other viruses.
