South Shore Line takes steps for coronavirus prevention
SOUTH BEND, Ind. – The South Shore Line announced it will take measures to prevent the spread of coronavirus on its trains.
The SSL will increase frequency and intensity of sanitization on its trains and stations.
CDC-approved sanitizers and disinfectants will be used every day on all services, with at least 24-hour effectiveness in combating the virus.
The SSL is encouraging passengers to use soap and water on trains for appropriate hand washing measures and will reinforce train personnel to follow the same guidelines.
The CDC says risk of infection can be lowered by washing your hands, avoiding touching your face, staying home when sick and avoiding close contact with those you know are sick.
