April 2, 2020

 

ROCKINGHAM The Current, a division of Southeast Vermont Transit, was informed the evening of April 1st that one of its drivers has tested positive for the COVID 19 virus.

The driver drove the Blue Line in Brattleboro March 16-19. According to Eric Seel, Epidemiologist at the Vermont Department of Health, this driver poses no close contact threat of spreading the virus to fellow staff or riders. The driver left work and quarantined starting the evening of March 19th, three days before his/her symptoms appeared. According to Seel, the virus can be transmitted via person to person up to 48 hours prior to symptoms appearing, thus there is no person to person contact threat. The driver has been out for 14 days and is eligible to return to work pending a doctor’s release.

Current Adjust Schedule On Okemo Route 61

Posted:

ROCKINGHAM – The Current will not operate the Bellows Falls-Chester-Okemo winter seasonal bus route March 17-22, 2020 because of Okemo postponing its operations during that time.

This route, also known as the #61, operates seasonally to transport Okemo workers. Okemo makes a substantial annual contribution to the operating costs, and ridership is up slightly this year over last.

Vail Resorts, Okemo’s parent company, decided Saturday night to suspend operations at all of its North American resorts, including Okemo, from March 15-22. The Current operated the #61 Sunday and Monday, March 15-16, just in case staff needed to go to work.

Vail Resorts will announce Friday, March 20th, if it will re-open resorts starting March 23rd or not. The Current will mirror Vail’s decision on whether it resumes #61 service or not and will make an announcement.

The service was scheduled daily until April 12th.

Update March 16, 2020
