CAT Central Office closes for deep cleaning after potential COVID-19 exposure
Posted on July 17, 2020
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.
