      Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) is a respiratory illness (see list of symptoms) caused by a virus called SARS-CoV-2. Here’s what we currently know:

      • The main way the virus spreads is from person to person through respiratory droplets when people cough, sneeze or talk.

      • You may also be able to get COVID-19 by touching a surface or object that has the virus on it, and then touching your face, mouth, nose, or eyes.

      • The virus may be spread by people who do not have symptoms.

      COVID-19 can sometimes cause serious health problems. People at increased risk for severe illness include:

      Older adults

      People of any age who have certain underlying medical conditions

      As a transit maintenance employer, your workforce might come into contact with the virus when

      • In close contact (within about 6 feet) with other people at the worksite, which can include passengers, coworkers, transit station workers, and transit operators.

      • Touching or handling high-contact surfaces and equipment, and then touching their face, mouth, nose, or eyes.
