COVID-19 Message from Nevada County Connects

Per the California Department of Public Health guidance issued on June 18, 2020, all persons waiting for, or riding on, public transit must wear a face covering. Notifications of this requirement have been posted on all buses.

We understand that this may prove challenging for all passengers, but our staff is here to help and we will do everything we can to minimize the impacts on your travel experience.

We appreciate your efforts to support Nevada County Transit Services by complying with this new requirement and by continuing to practice all COVID-19 safety protocols.

  • Wash your hands with soap and water before and after riding public transit. If soap and water are not readily available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.
  • Cough or sneeze into your elbow.
  • Stay six feet away from other people.
  • Stay home if you are sick. IF YOU ARE NOT FEELING WELL, DO NOT TAKE PUBLIC TRANSPORTATION. Call your healthcare provider before you leave your home and follow their guidance.

While Nevada County Connects and Nevada County Now buses are increasing cleaning and sanitization, following these recommendations is the best way to prevent the spread of illnesses onboard. The Transit Services Division has also shared preventative information with staff to ensure they can remain safe and healthy when serving the public.

For the latest information about COVID-19 in communities served by Nevada County Transit Services, please refer to information and guidance provided by the following public health agencies:

Nevada County Transit Services is constantly monitoring ridership during this time and may implement service changes, as needed. Follow Nevada County Public Works on social media or check the website for the latest updates. We will continue to monitor the situation as it unfolds and respond as necessary in partnership with our public health and transportation partners.
