Frequently Asked Questions

How are you screening employees?
We have a set screening protocol for all employees. Any employee who feels ill or demonstrates COVID symptoms is required to stay home and is not permitted to enter any facilities or work their shift. All of our drivers are provided with masks and are required to wear them whenever they are within 6’ of any other person.

Will masks be required?
Masks are required to be worn by our staff when they are within 6’ of any other person; guests are also required to do so at all times aboard the trolley.

How are you cleaning/sanitizing the trolleys?
Our company already has an industry leading cleaning protocol. Vehicles are cleaned on a daily basis. In response to the COVID-19 situation, we have augmented this robust cleaning procedure with a disinfecting and sanitizing protocol. After the aforementioned cleaning is concluded, the vehicles are disinfected in their entirety using an EPA recommended solution effective in killing COVID-19 on contact. Additionally, our vehicles are sanitized at frequent regular intervals throughout the day on key touch points throughout the vehicle using an EPA-approved disinfectant.
