The SFMTA launches preventative PSA campaign on how to slow the spread of COVID-19
The SFMTA, in collaboration with the San Francisco Department of Public Health and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), has launched a “Stop the Spread of Germs” Public Service Announcement (PSA) campaign on Muni vehicles to keep city residents informed about how they can help slow the spread of novel coronavirus (COVID-19).
These preventative messages are going up throughout our system—as signage both inside and outside of vehicles, audio alerts on buses, NextMuni displays at bus shelters and signs at Muni Metro stations.
While the SFMTA has implemented some service reductions in response to ridership drops, many still rely on Muni to make essential trips during this challenging period. These messages serve as helpful reminders, both on the bus and the street, that we all play an important role in preventing the spread of coronavirus.
The San Francisco Department of Public Health and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommend these simple daily precautions:

  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands
  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash
  • Stay home if you are sick, except to get medical care
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick. Put distance between yourself and other people.
  • Those who are 60 and older, or with a health condition or a weakened immune system should limit outings and avoid community events
  • Please do not ride Muni if you are feeling ill, except as necessary to seek medical care after consulting with your medical provider.

We are closely monitoring what is happening with the novel coronavirus (COVID-19). Please check and for the latest updates.
Worried about COVID-19
Signage is being installed both inside and outside of Muni vehicles and in stations to promote awareness about how to prevent the spread of coronavirus.
