Carshare company Evo is asking customers to refrain from using the service for non-essential trips in order to slow the spread of COVID-19.

In a statement, Evo said it acknowledges some people rely on the service for non-essential trips and it wants “to be there for frontline workers to get to work, or for picking up urgent groceries or meds.”

“So, our ask to you is, if you don’t need us, please stay home,” said Evo, adding that the decision is “simply the right thing to do for our community – and that’s what’s important right now.”

Evo says although it has “more than doubled” its cleaning and disinfecting, customers taking essential trips should still use wipes at the start and end of the trip on everything they touch, including the steering wheel, door handles, gear shift, seat belt, parking brake, blinkers, and any other buttons.

“Just like any other time you venture out, avoid putting your hands to your mouth, nose or face before washing your hands with water and soap for at least 20 seconds, to keep yourself and all others safe.”
