Notice: Student Presto Cards
- Published: Tuesday, 31 March 2020 10:11
This is an important transportation safety message from OSTA.
To all students:
If you do not need to travel, then stay home. If you must take public transit for essential travel, such as going to a job or to help a family member, you may use your School Board Presto Card for the foreseeable future. Please exercise all precautions listed by Ottawa Public Health and OC Transpo to keep yourself safe and to stop the spread of COVID-19:
1. If you are sick, you have recently returned from travelling outside of Canada, or have come into contact with someone who recently returned from travelling outside of Canada, stay home.
2. Stay home if you don’t need to go out for anything important, so you don’t catch COVID-19.
3. If you must go out, exercise social/physical distancing – meaning stay at least 2m away from other people.
4. If you cough or sneeze, do it in your elbow, not your hand.
5. Don’t touch your face, your nose, your ears, your mouth.
6. Wash your hands for 20 seconds with lots of soap, and/or use hand-sanitizer, often, especially after taking the bus.
You can help stop the spread of COVID-19, even if you need to use public transit. Please be a responsible citizen, and take care of your health and the health of those you love.
