COVID-19 - Say no to car sharing if possible
If for some reason, you can’t avoid sharing a car with another person, there are certain precautions the CDC recommends taking:
Try to only share a car with someone in your “bubble” who you would normally be spending time with anyway.
If using a car service, such as a taxi or Uber, sit in the back and put as much distance between you and the driver as possible.
Avoid using the recirculated air option for the car’s ventilation, use the car’s vents to bring in fresh outside air and/or keep the windows open.
Avoid contact with surfaces frequently touched by passengers or other drivers, such as door frame/handles, windows, seatbelt buckles, steering wheel, gearshift, signaling levers, and other vehicle parts before cleaning and disinfection.
Always wear a mask when going out, and especially when sharing a car or in any confined space.
Finally, in cars and ride-sharing, we want the windows open at all times. more
