The Health and Safety of Our Staff and Guests Is Our Top Priority.
As with any transmissible illness, risk of exposure to COVID-19 exists in any place where people gather or are present. Based upon guidance issued by the Center for Disease Control (CDC) as well as other federal, state and local agencies and authorities, we have implemented – for our staff and guests – the following protocols and best practices to limit the risk:
Limiting train car capacity to 50% of the maximum occupancy per car
Where possible, “social distancing” is encouraged throughout the property
Hand sanitizing stations will be available for guest and employee use
Signs, PA announcements, and staff instruction both onboard and while on BRSR property will provide reminders to guests and employees alike of the importance of “social distancing,” frequent hand washing, and mask-wearing
Cashless transactions are available and strongly encouraged throughout all purchasing locations, including the Gift Shop
Frequent sanitizing of all public areas including commonly used surfaces in the Ticket Office/Gift Shop/Concession such as door handles, countertops, seating areas
Clear protective barriers at all front-facing service counters – Ticket Office, Gift Shops, and Concessions Sales
All employees receive daily health screenings, temperature, and symptom checks
Any employees exhibiting symptoms will be asked to return/stay home
All employees will be required to wear a BRSR-issued facemask and/or shield while on company property
In addition to facemasks and/or shields, front-line employees and those working in public/guest areas will be required to wear BRSR-issued gloves
All employees are kept up to date on CDC & OSHA guidelines regarding workplace safety during COVD-19
All employees must adhere to all departmental cleaning and disinfecting instructions based on CDC guidelines

We encourage adherence to proper hand washing guidelines
We encourage you to cover your mouth and nose with a tissue when you cough or sneeze and dispose of

We encourage courteousness in enclosed spaces and walkways and permitting ample space for passing and “social distancing”
We encourage all to remain seated in your assigned passenger coach during your round trip, except for the layover in McCaysville, Ga / Copperhill, TN
