WENATCHEE - Link Transit remains a safe and secure way to travel throughout Chelan and Douglas Counties during this challenging time of dealing with the spread of COVID-19 (Coronavirus). According to local health care providers, there have been some confirmed cases of COVID-19 in our area. However, all of these patients are currently under medical watch, and there is no indication that any of them have traveled on Link Transit in the recent past.

Link Transit buses and vans are cleaned and disinfected nightly when they return to the maintenance base. This is standard practice, and these efforts are ongoing. Buses are also equipped with disinfectants that the drivers can use throughout the day if they feel it is necessary. Link drivers have the option of using personal protection equipment.

Link is encouraging people to follow the recommended protective measures from the Centers for Disease Control.

* Washing your hands frequently (for 20 seconds) or if unable to wash,
using a hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol
* Avoid touching your mouth and eyes
* Cover your cough and sneezes
* Stay away from people who are sick
* Stay home if you are sick

Should the CDC recommend additional practices to help promote public safety, Link Transit will make adjustments at that time.
