Tillamook Transportation District which runs “The Wave” bus service and Dial-a-Ride Countywide, seeks community feedback on what service improvements to pursue in their response to the State Transportation Improvement Plan. A link to their survey is available online. Go to surveymonkey.com/r/TCTDSTIF. We are encouraged to pass the link on to as many people as we possibly can. We complete the survey anonymously, but those who opt to may leave contact information to be entered into a drawing to receive a $25 Fred Meyer Gift Card.
In order to reduce the spread of Covid-19, Tillamook County Health Authority advises that summer travelers take the following precautions: Reconsider domestic travel. (Travel can increase your chances of getting and spreading Covid-19. If you must travel, be mindful of any restrictions you encounter. During travel, wash your hands often with warm water and soap for at least 20 seconds. If you can’t wash your hands, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer. Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth. Remain at least six feet from others not in your immediate household. Wear a cloth face covering or mask when you aren’t in your R.V., hotel room or rented lodging.
Furthermore, the Public Health Authority recommends that individuals self-quarantine for 14 calendar days following a return from out of state travel. Returning travelers are advised to monitor any symptoms (fever, cough, shortness of breath) during the 14 day period, and to report any health concerns to your primary health care provider. Tillamook County Health Department has established a nurse advice line, available for Covid-19 related questions free of charge. Hours are 8 a.m. until 5 p.m. , Monday-Friday. Call 503- 842-3940.
