COVID-19 Update: June 8, 2020

On June 4, Governor Tom Wolf issued an order for 16 counties, including Allegheny County, to move into the green phase of Pennsylvania’s COVID-19 response.

The green phase eases most restrictions by lifting the stay-at-home and business closure orders to allow the economy to strategically reopen while continuing to prioritize public health.

Healthy Ride will continue to operate in the Green Phase as it has in the Yellow Phase; we are committed to the continued sanitization of Healthy Ride bikes and stations and maintaining social distancing amongst essential employees, with many employees continuing to work remotely.

It is imperative that our riders continue to diligently protect themselves and other riders while using Healthy Ride; COVID-19 is still spreading and it’s imperative to keep yourself and your fellow rides safe. Riders should:

  • maintain a 6-foot minimum distance from others
  • wash hands before and after a ride
  • consider bringing along sanitizing wipes to clean your bike before and after you ride
  • avoid touching your face with unwashed hands
  • consider wearing gloves as an additional precaution.

 

We will continue to sanitize our fleet and stations, and continue our modified internal operations in order for our staff to practice social distancing. While we are taking every precaution to prevent the spread of COVID-19, we strongly encourage folks to stay home whenever possible. For more details about our safety procedures, read our update from April 17th here.

A note about our Winter Hibernation stations

Due to the ongoing health crisis and it’s impact on our operations, Healthy Ride has no immediate plans to re-install the 13 stations we took into winter hibernation. We recognize that this may impact our riders and hope that other nearby stations will continue to provide a substitution for these stations. Please stay tuned for further announcements regarding these stations.
