What is Envoy doing about COVID-19?
Transportation is an essential service and we want to ensure our community members have access to a clean, sustainable, and affordable option to get the essential items they need (groceries, medicines, etc). We are working with our car cleaning partners (GoodYear and Simply Clean) to enhance the sanitization levels and frequency. We are also encouraging our Envoy community to be a good neighbor by keeping the car clean (wipe down before and after) and following CDC recommendations to keep us all healthy and safe. Many of our members have informed us they feel safer with Envoy than other open-to-the-public options. as Envoy is an amenity exclusively for the residents in a more controlled environment.
