FOR SAFETY & COVID-19
With the recent news around coronovirus (COVID-19), we want to make sure our drivers and riders know the best ways to protect themselves and others when sharing the ride. It is our mission to safely provide transportation for all riders but especially those at high risk during this current outbreak.
The CDC and the World Health Organization (WHO) are continually updating their sites with the latest information about travel warnings, new outbreaks, and disease developments. Our office will be actively monitoring those sites and advising accordingly.
The health and safety of our drivers and riders is our priority.
Show Me Non-Emergency Medical Transportation is going the extra mile.
All patients that are needing life sustaining treatments such as cancer treatments, dialysis, cardiac care and others will continue to need to be transported to their treatment facilities and back home. We are in fact an extension of the health care industry for our most vulnerable citizens and that health care system can not shut down or lives are placed in danger.
Therefore, it is our intent to remain open and continuing to offer our services to those in need.
Before and after each pickup, our drivers are sanitizing door handles, seat belts, and other areas that our riders come in contact with, as well as liberal and frequent use of hand-washing and hand sanitizers. They are also providing an even more thorough sanitation of their vehicles at the ends of their shifts.
Tips for our Riders on Taking Care of Yourself. Wash your hands frequently for 20 seconds with soapy water. Use hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol content. Cover your mouth with a tissue should you need to sneeze or cough. Eat a healthy diet. Take plenty of vitamins and immune-boosting supplements.
If you are a person with a diminished immune system, have a respiratory deficiency or other factors that may place you at higher risk (see various articles, publications and reports on what constitutes a higher risk), then we urge you to consider your situation and to take safety precautions as you deem necessary. Do not hesitate to obtain professional advice from your personal physician.
