CAT Central Office closes for deep cleaning after potential COVID-19 exposure

Savannah, Ga. – Chatham Area Transit was notified Friday that a vendor who worked at CAT’s administrative headquarters at 900 East Gwinnett St. on July 7 recently tested positive for COVID-19.  CAT is not aware of any employee that has tested positive or developed symptoms as a result of this situation. However, out of an abundance of caution all administrative offices will be closed starting today and through next week for a deep cleaning.

Administrative employees will be teleworking through next week and employees also are being encouraged to get tested for potential exposure.

The sanitizing effort will not impact CAT’s fixed-route, CAT Mobility and Savannah Belles ferry services. Those services will operate as planned, with the previously announced schedule with reduced fixed-route and CAT Mobility evening hours starting Monday. Under the schedule starting Monday, all fixed-route buses and CAT Mobility paratransit vehicles will cease operations by 10 p.m. on weekdays and Saturdays. Customer service will also continue to be available at (912) 233-5767 from 6 a.m. to 8 p.m., Mon.-Fri., and from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. on weekends.

Customers should be aware of the safety measures and policies that will remain in place to help prevent the spread of the COVID-19 virus:

  • Fixed-route bus capacity is limited to 12 to 15 passengers.
  • CAT Mobility buses are limited to three passengers.
  • Bus and CAT Mobility customers should ride only for essential trips such as work, medical appointments and grocery shopping.
  • Roundtrips or joyriding is prohibited.
  • Fare collection remains suspended and customers should use the rear doors if possible to avoid contact with the operator.
  • Passengers are urged to wear masks or face coverings while riding the bus or using CAT Mobility services.
