Greensboro bus depot lobby closed for ‘deep cleaning’ after person with coronavirus symptoms comes in

News

GREENSBORO, N.C. — The main lobby of the Douglas Galyon Depot bus station is closed so the lobby can be cleaned after a person with coronavirus symptoms came in to the lobby Monday night.

The main lobby will be closed until further notice while the depot undergoes a “deep cleaning.”

The City of Greensboro released a statement Tuesday afternoon, saying:

“On Monday evening, March 30 EMS was called to Douglas Galyon Depot to help a sick person, who was experiencing what appeared to be coronavirus symptoms. The waiting room of the Depot was immediately closed and crews began to disinfect the space. It is closed today to allow for that work to be completed.

The Greensboro Transit Agency is working to establish whether that person traveled on any City buses. As of this time, the City does not know whether this person has coronavirus. A sign posted at the Depot earlier today erroneously stated that there was a positive exposure to coronavirus within the facility.

The City has reached out to Guilford County Public Health officials on this issue. GTA will update the public as new information is available.

Riders should continue to use the bus only to access essential services and for essential work. Riders should continue to enter the bus at the rear door, use hand sanitizer on the bus, stay behind the driver’s partition, and not ride a GTA bus while sick.
