OATS Transit is encouraging all drivers to wear appropriate face masks when interacting with the public to prevent the spread of the novel coronavirus. This echoes Federal Transit Administration and CDC recommendations. OATS Transit will provide face coverings that meet the CDC guidelines. Instructions on how to properly wear a face mask along with definitions and limitations of various types of masks can be found on the employee website or at the regional office. This is in effect through May 31, 2020; however, drivers who wish to continue this practice beyond the current pandemic are welcome to do so and OATS Transit will keep face masks in stock.
