Taking Fairfax Connector? County Officials Urge Riders to Wear Face Masks

County officials are urging Fairfax Connector passengers to cover their faces while riding the bus.

Fairfax County announced today (Wednesday) that passengers should use non-medical face coverings or cloth masks to help prevent spreading the coronavirus.

“While the use of cloth face coverings is strongly encouraged, no one without such a face covering will be denied entry to Fairfax Connector buses,” the announcement said.

Additionally, passengers should practice social distancing, avoid public transportation when sick and wash their hands often.

The bus service has taken several recent steps to combat the virus from implementing rear door boarding to suspending fare collection. The buses are also being cleaned more frequently.

In the announcement, county officials shared a video Dawna Poyner, a public health nurse with the Fairfax County Health Department, taking about face coverings.
