Control and Prevention

General guidance for all U.S. workers and employers


For all workers, regardless of specific exposure risks, it is always a good practice to

  • Frequently wash your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds.  When soap and running water are unavailable, use an alcohol-based hand rub with at least 60% alcohol. Always wash hands that are visible soiled.

  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, or mouth with unwashed hands.

  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.

Where's My Bus!

The Santee Wateree RTA has recently changed to a new scheduling and dispatching software. The new software will help us better serve our passengers and communities of Sumter, Lee, Orangeburg and Calhoun counties. Passengers can use their computer, laptop, tablet or phone to access the Passenger Bus Portal to see their bus location, the scheduled time and predicted time of the bus stop arrival. We will also now be able to post any delays in service, as well as, send messages out to the passengers on this portal.
