Notes from a zoom meeting:
We sat in on part of the SaveMuni zoom meeting yesterday where Roger Marenco, Muni Drivers’ Union President, joined for a short conversation about the health of the drivers. He informed us that twelve Muni employees were sickened by COVID-19 as of last month and that no new cases have been reported since.
We asked what he attributed this to. He feels that implementing the new social distancing standards, installing plastic shields around the drivers, requiring masks, entering the back of the bus, forgoing cash payments, and deep cleaning has been beneficial and hopes this experience will not be forgotten.
