How Dangerous Is Taking Public Transportation Right Now?
Here’s what the experts say
“No activity is going to be without risk as we move forward during this pandemic. Public transportation can be more or less dangerous depending upon what the dynamics of infection are in a given city as well as what social distancing is possible. When you’re on public transportation it is important to be mindful of others around you and try to wash your hands more and touch your face less. Trying to keep distance, if possible, will also be useful.”
