Face Masks Required on LTD Buses
May 14, 2021
Passengers riding Lane Transit District (LTD) buses and all public transportation, including at bus stations are still required to wear a mask covering their nose and mouth and observe social distancing guidelines according to new recommendations released by the Center for Disease Control (CDC) on Thurs., May 13, 2021.
The new CDC requirements allow for people who are fully vaccinated to not wear masks or practice social distancing in many public places with the exception of public transportation, hospitals, long-term care facilities, and correctional facilities. Immuno-compromised individuals should consult with their care provider about wearing masks and social distancing.
