Santa Clarita Transit (SCT) considers the health and safety of our employees and customers to be of utmost importance. In light of recent updates regarding the Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) SCT continues to monitor the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health as well as the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) for up-to-date preventative best practices for our operators and maintenance staff.

 

Please note that while SCT always upholds regular cleaning practices of our vehicles and facilities, we are currently implementing enhanced cleaning procedures. This includes additional cleaning of surfaces that experience elevated levels of physical contact such as doors, handrails, armrests, pull chords, fareboxes, etc. Maintenance staff uses hospital-grade disinfectant on all of the aforementioned surfaces daily across our entire fleet.

 

Operators have been briefed on proper handwashing and general hygienic procedures. We have provided automatic hand sanitizer dispensers in common areas at the Transit Maintenance Facility and have made available to operators individual hand sanitizer bottles.

 

In following with CDC recommendations, we urge our passengers to:

  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth
  • Stay at home if you are ill
  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue
  • Clean and disinfect regularly touched objects and surfaces using a regular household cleaning spray or wipes
  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds
    • If soap and water are not readily available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60 percent alcohol
