This is a rapidly evolving situation. This fact sheet will be updated online as needed. See links at the end of this fact sheet for the most up-to-date information.

COVID-19 is spreading rapidly within the United States. The outbreak has been declared a national emergency in the United States and a global pandemic by the World Health Organization. Protecting workers who engage in local and suburban passenger transportation by bus, rail, or subway should be a high priority so that they can continue to provide transportation services without getting sick or spreading the infection to their communities.

EMS Corornavirus Information and Checklist

 

Workers and employers involved in EMS or other medical transport operations will likely need to adopt guidelines for the mobile work environment. That may mean relying on personal protective equipment (PPE)such as respirators to protect workers when the use of isolation rooms or other isolation mechanisms are not practical and when the staff has potentially prolonged, close contact with suspected or confirmed COVID-19 patients in transit.
