WBHF Radio – 

(Via WBHF Radio) Bartow County announces its Transit Department will be closed the week of July 13 to July 17.

 Four department employees have tested positive for COVID-19. 

All employees have been tested and we are awaiting results on eleven employees.

In an abundance of caution, we are closing the department for next week, especially since many of the riders are medically vulnerable.

We will evaluate the situation next week as to whether we can partially reopen the following week.

In the meantime, the buses and the Transit Office are being sanitized.
