Coronavirus Precautions for Auburn Transit Passengers

The City of Auburn continues to work closely with Placer County Public Health, the lead agency in our county regarding the Coronavirus/COVID-19.

Placer County Public Health is coordinating with Federal, State and local officials for up to date information about the virus and in turn working with local government, healthcare providers, schools and others to ensure the safety of our community.

The most current information about the virus in our area will come from Placer County Public Health on Placer County’s social media accounts and their website at

The safety and well-being of Auburn Transit passengers is our top priority and we are currently taking the following measures:

  • Sanitizing high-touch surfaces daily,
  • Regular bus cleaning, and
  • Additional cleaning and sanitizing as needed.

In addition to regular cleaning, it’s important to keep in mind that frequently used surfaces—like railings, fare boxes or doors—are only clean until someone touches or coughs/sneezes on them. If we’re to prevent the spread of coronavirus, we need your help.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends these precautions:

  • Stay home if you’re sick.
  • Wash your hands or use hand sanitizers often.
  • Cover your cough with your elbow.
  • At least once a day, clean and disinfect high-touch surfaces and objects such as door handles and public counters in your work areas or at home.
  • Be OK with not shaking hands.

The City of Auburn is continuing to monitor this situation.

Stay informed. Be sure you’re following us at the City of Auburn Facebook page for the most up to date info.
