Old Town Trolley Tours is taking enhanced safety and health measures for the benefit of our guests. Inherent risks to COVID-19 exist in any place where people are gathered. By using our services, you voluntarily assume all risks rising out of or resulting from exposure to COVID-19 or any other communicable illness.
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?
Face coverings are required to be worn by all staff and guests over the age of six (6) per city code. For the convenience of our guests, face masks are available for purchase.
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.
How will you enforce social distancing?
We are limiting our seating capacity on our tours in order to assure appropriate social distancing between any participants. We will reduce our capacity and arrange the seating layout to assure appropriate distancing. Seats between parties will be chained off and not available for seating.
How will you handle groups and charters?
Groups and charters will be available but will be subject to the limitations required by the Mayor’s declaration including social distancing protocols.
