Teddy’s is taking every precaution with the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak

With the spread of the virus dominating not only the news but everyone’s lives, Teddy’s urges its customers and members of our community to stay safe. Stay home if you can. But if you must travel, know that we’re taking every precaution to keep everyone safe by disinfecting all cars before and after each trip.

Be assured that, despite Connecticut and neighboring states closing non-essential businesses, all area states deemed, as ‘essential,’ public transportation (that’s us) and transportation infrastructure including airports and gas stations.

What we’re doing to protect you

Team Teddy’s understands your concerns surrounding COVID-19. That’s why we’re taking every precaution to ensure our vehicles are safe and sanitary for passengers, including:

  • Cleaning and disinfecting all passenger areas and frequently touched areas (including door handles, climate control knobs, and seat belt buckles) between trips using a CDC-approved cleaning spray or wipe.
  • Encouraging all drivers to adhere to high standards of personal hygiene. This includes washing hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, covering coughs and sneezes with a tissue, and staying home when they are sick.

Travel bans and what is not banned

Domestic air travel is not banned. Nor is driving or crossing state lines. On March 24th, Connecticut Governor Ned Lamont declared, in response to rumors of closing the border with New York, “right now, that’s not an option.”

But many of our customers are international travelers who regularly visit other countries for work and play. At this time, the U.S. Department of State recommends avoiding nonessential travel to certain countries, including China, Iran, and most of Europe. If you have a trip to another country coming up in the next few weeks, check the State Department website for regular updates. Do not travel to another part of the world without first becoming informed about the spread of COVID-19 in that area.

Additionally, the White House has banned travel from 26 European countries. The ban will be in place for 30 days and is effective March 13th, 2020. U.S. citizens will be allowed to return from these countries but must travel through specific airports where they will receive screening for the virus.
