Spike in COVID Cases at DPT Leads to Bus Operators Withdrawing their Services

After an emergency meeting held at the Department of Public Transport (DPT) this morning, the BIU’s Bus Division have decided to withdraw their labor as of noon today (September 17), under the premises of the Health and Safety Act Regulations 84, Section 1E, due to a sudden surge of positive COVID cases at the DPT headquarters.

All common areas of the DPT and all buses will undergo a deep cleaning and sanitation, all employees will be tested, hand sanitizing and mask wearing for passengers will be more strongly enforced, and passengers must wear official masks on the bus ( no bandanas, handkerchiefs, etc.)

All employees are now encouraged to secure COVID testing at either the Clocktower Mall, Penno’s Wharf, Bulls Head, Edgewood Pediatric, or North Shore Medical Center facilities and must return all buses to where they signed on.

Everyone is urged to practice safety procedures to reduce further spread of the virus. Stay tuned to TNN for further updates.
