After two confirmed coronavirus cases in New York City, the Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA) is on sanitize alert.
MTA workers were scrubbing down subway stations, trains and train cars on March 3. Disinfectant, wipes and high-pressure washers were used to sanitize 472 subway stations and over 2,000 train cars. The MTA wants to clean the entire fleet, 6,400 subway cars, every three days until further notice.
The Long Island Rail Road, Metro-North Rail Road and Staten Island Railway also are cleansing their systems.
MTA Chairman Patrick Foye does not believe ridership has declined over the last couple of days, stating that cars were packed to capacity on March 3.
New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo said there will be new cleaning protocols on public transportation.
