Casco Bay Island Transit District (CBITD) is offering its full support to two employees who recently tested positive for COVID-19. Neither employee had been on site for six days prior to receiving a positive test result and, consistent with guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the employees will not return to work until cleared by their health care provider in accordance with CDC guidelines for isolation and return to work.
At this time, there is no indication that transmission occurred at Casco Bay Lines and we believe the risk to CBITD employees and customers is minimal. Any employees who may have been in close contact with or shared a common workspace with the infected employee have been notified directly and given instruction for applicable isolation requirements. We do not anticipate any immediate impact to our operations as a result of these cases.
We have and will continue to take steps to ensure the health and safety of our employees, our customers and our community. This includes platooning of staff and crews, use of face coverings at all times, physical distancing and enhanced cleaning and disinfection being performed in accordance with CDC guidelines.

Additional information about the identity of the employees will not be disclosed to the general public. We are proud of our essential workforce and the work they are doing to maintain critical service to the islands we serve.
