Capital Metro Providing Face Coverings for All Public-Facing Employees
In response to the recently updated guidelines from the CDC, Capital Metro has begun distribution of masks for frontline staff. This means all public-facing employees - including bus, rail and paratransit operations, building and vehicle cleaning crews, building and vehicle maintenance, security, and administrative and contract staff not working remotely - will receive masks.
We were able to secure a supply of face coverings thanks in part to the generous donations from community organizations such as the Asian Pacific Islander Public Affairs Association. Some Capital Metro staff members have also started making masks at home for our frontline employees.
Masks are not meant to replace the other public health precautions. Maintaining 6-feet social distancing and good hygiene practices, including hand washing, remain crucial to slowing the spread of the virus.
The safety and wellbeing of the Capital Metro family and our customers is our number one priority as we continue to deliver a critical service for the community.
