Regarding a Coach Operator Testing Positive for COVID-19

LOUISVILLE, KY. (August 10, 2020)

On August 10, 2020, TARC confirmed a positive test result of COVID-19 for a Coach Operator. This operator last worked on August 3rd when they became ill and left work immediately, and contacted their doctor.

The bus operator drove Route 10 between 5:30 am and 9:00 am on August 3rd.  TARC is suggesting anyone who rode this route on August 3rd, 2020 monitor themselves for possible symptoms. If symptoms occur isolate yourself and self-treat at home. If you become seriously ill, contact your healthcare provider. If you experience a medical emergency, seek treatment as you would in any other medical emergency. All TARC riders should be practicing social distancing at all times to avoid exposing themselves and others while on or off TARC buses.

TARC continues to operate for “essential services only.”  Unless obtaining necessary supplies and services to sustain your life and the lives of others, or traveling to and from employment in an “essential business” that is “necessary to sustain life,” you should remain at home.

Respecting state and CDC guidelines, all passengers are required to wear face coverings to help prevent the spread of COVID-19. All drivers are required to wear face coverings and are seated behind a closed barrier, preventing contact with passengers. All buses are cleaned, sanitized and disinfected daily. The yellow “standee” line on all coaches has been moved back to 8 feet, limiting potential interaction between drivers and passengers to a safer distance.
