For Mobility Managers working together with schools, businesses, health care systems, and health departments is a critical portion of the daily work you do to improve mobility and access in your communities.
This work has an even more important role in slowing the spread of COVID-19, particularly among high risk populations. Transportation and mobility providers are just one part of a community, local, regional, and national effort to address the pandemic. It will take a collective approach to effectively slow the spread, and reduce the impact of COVID-19 in our communities.
As mentioned in our previous blog on Mobility Management in the Coronavirus Pandemic, mobility managers should first and foremost reach out to your local, state, (and tribal when applicable) health departments as they are the experts and leaders on the ground in conjunction with health care providers.
The Community Transportation Association of America (CTAA) recently posted a series of best practice documents on various topics for transportation providers on the front line of COVID-19 response, including best practices for partnering with your local health department. Given the importance of this topic, NCMM has decided to reshare the information here.
