San Diego Buses and Trolleys Sanitized Against Hepatitis

Following the San Diego County Department of Health and Human Services’ advice to sanitize public streets in San Diego, CA, to help stop the spread of hepatitis A, the city’s Metropolitan Transit System (MTS) has begun taking some of the same precautions.

The MTS cleans its 500 buses and 128 trolley cars daily. In response to the hepatitis A outbreak, which has sickened more than 400 people since November 2016, the transit system began supplementing its regular disinfectant with a stronger, chlorine bleach solution, KUSI news reports. Cleaning crews are giving extra attention to handrails, door handles, seat backs, and other-high touch areas. Workers wear masks and gloves to protect themselves from germs as they clean and dispose of all used clothes to prevent cross-contamination.

MTS also is power washing trolley stations with the bleach solution and plans to install hand-washing stations at several trolley stops.
