April 8, 2020
06/18/20 – Per the Governon’s official mandate, face coverings are required to board and while riding any of OmniTrans’ services. Learn more about acceptable face coverings here.
To protect the public from the spread of coronavirus, the County of San Bernardino has formally ordered everyone to wear a face covering when leaving their home starting Tuesday, April 8, 2020. All Omnitrans customers traveling for essential needs are now required to wear a face covering upon entering and while riding any Omnitrans bus, effective immediately. Those not wearing a protective face covering or mask will not be permitted to ride.
Face coverings include any dense cloth without holes that secures safely to the ears or back of the head and covers the mouth and nose area. This may be a homemade cloth with ear loops, bandana, handkerchief, scarf, or neck gaiter. Medical grade masks and N95 masks must be preserved for healthcare workers and emergency responders. Learn more about face coverings and how to make them at home from the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention.
Omnitrans continues to support public health efforts by providing lifeline transportation service for essential needs only. Please keep this in mind for your protection and well-being of our community at large.
