The current virus pandemic continues to present unique challenges for healthcare providers and those providing support services. In an effort to reduce potential spread, we are deploying the following enhanced policies and procedures help protect passengers and employees:

  • Focused Transportation
    • We are pleased to remain open – providing local and long-distance transportation for trips considered “medically necessary”; including, but are not limited to, facility discharges and routine treatments essential to one’s overall health and well-being
    • We ask that patients experiencing flu-like symptoms be rescheduled
    • Whenever possible, patients will be received and returned to the entrance main lobby of each facility versus individual rooms
  • Limit Expose
    • Employees experiencing flu-like symptoms are to remain home
    • Drivers are instructed, to the best of their ability, avoid direct contact with anyone unrelated to the transfer or transport of a patient
    • Drivers will practice “social distancing” while both on and off duty
    • Passengers are asked to create distance by sitting in the back seat.
    • Drivers will ensure proper ventilation.
    • Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) is utilized
      • Transport for COVID-19 testing (ambulatory riders only)
        • Protective barrier between driver & passenger compartments.
