Today Mayor Breed and the city’s Director of Health Grant Colfax announced that the City and County of San Francisco will join with five other Bay Area counties, Alameda, Contra Costa, Marin, San Mateo and Santa Clara, to issue a Public Health Order in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. The Public Health Order requires that residents remain in their homes, with the only exception being for essential services and needs, effective tonight at midnight. The purpose of this directive is to work together to reduce the transmission of the virus. This is an evolving and challenging situation, and we are prepared to address it. We will be prioritizing service to community lines that get people to hospitals and commercial streets. We will also be suspending express bus and special event services to focus our resources on the areas that need it most.
SFMTA staff is doing everything we can to keep our vehicles clean. Muni car cleaners, station custodians, and paratransit personnel clean vehicles and high-touch surfaces regularly. Daily vehicle cleaning includes safe, strong disinfectants on high-touch surfaces at the end of service. High-touch surfaces such as railings in Muni subway stations are cleaned approximately every four hours. The cable car lines and the F-Market heritage line will be temporarily converted to bus operation for the duration.
