ALERT!!—MTA Ukiah Office Closed, Dispatch Open
Many areas of the world are experiencing an expanding outbreak of respiratory illness caused by a novel (new) coronavirus, COVID-19. Although Mendocino County has no reported cases of the virus at this time, local government seeks to protect citizens and slow the spread of the illness.
On March 11, the World Health Organization characterized COVID-19 as a pandemic. To slow the spread of the virus, on March 13, Governor Newsom ordered all citizens over the age of 65 to remain isolated. Our local schools have stopped ‘on-site curriculum’ from March 17 through April 17, 2020.
As our families and our communities plan for and experience additional closures, MTA would like you to be aware that the decision has been made to close the MTA office located at 241 Plant Road in Ukiah and implement its work-from-home policy for all non-essential employees. MTA may also have to reduce service or modify regularly scheduled routes during this time. MTA will continue to monitor telephone calls through its dispatch office at 707-234-6440 as well as provide updated information on its website at www.mendocinotransit.org
Other sources of information you should monitor on a regular basis are the Mendocino County Department of Public Health https://www.mendocinocounty.org/government/health-and-human-services-agency/public-health and the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) https://www.cdc.gov/
Thank you for your continued patience and cooperation during this time.
