To ensure the safety of all individuals riding Mass General Brigham shuttle buses and passenger vans, we will be strictly enforcing proper masking and social distancing policies on all vehicles: All riders will: *be required to wear face masks correctly--covering their nose and mouth. *not be permitted to eat or drink on the shuttles to ensure that masks remain in place consistently. *be required to be seated once a vehicle is in motion. Capacity will not exceed the number of available seats. Drivers will enforce the mask policy at all times, ensuring that a face mask is properly seated on the face of every passenger, properly covering the nose and mouth. There is to be NO consumption of food or beverage by ANY passenger (patient, visitor or employee) while onboard shuttle buses and passenger vans. As a secondary measure to stopping the spread of infectious diseases, all passengers are advised to perform hand hygiene when entering and exiting shuttle buses. We are pleased to provide hand sanitizing dispensers onboard all shuttle buses, up front near the driver's area. FAQ: When will these policies be relaxed? Our policies are governed by public health guidance and hospital policies, which state that face masks MUST be worn when physical distancing is not possible, including when using public transportation, REGARDLESS of vaccination status. We thank you for riding and appreciate your cooperation.
