Unwell Canberrans are being asked not to catch public transport to help protect the service providers and others in the community, a Transport Canberra and City Services spokeswoman said.
Across the territory, the government, businesses and organisations are putting in place strategies to manage the spread of coronavirus.
While Transport Canberra will continue to provide public transport services, they have sought expert advice around current cleaning procedures for vehicles and will adapt those procedures if necessary and if and when required.
"Transport Canberra is continuing to provide the services which the community rely on each day," the spokeswoman said.
"Passengers, and our staff, are reminded that performing regular hand hygiene is the best way to protect yourself.
"Passengers are also encouraged to avoid using public transport if they feel unwell."
Meanwhile, nursing homes across the country are being advised by the federal government to reduce visitor numbers.

Goodwin, which runs a number of residential aged care facilities in Canberra, said they were monitoring the advice daily and "implementing strong hygiene measures".
A spokeswoman said they had begun implementing teleconferencing for some meetings, and they were planning ahead for potential disruptions to resources or supplies. She said they were monitoring residents and briefing residents and staff on the situation.
They had been advised that some of their usual items may become difficult to source, but they were not currently experiencing problems with critical supplies, the spokeswoman said.
"We are putting plans in place for extra resources to assist if Goodwin needs to support staff in the event of the virus spreading at any of our facilities," the spokeswoman said.
The ACT Red Cross, which provides Meals on Wheels and daily phone calls to the elderly, has been updating their clients on the coronavirus situation for weeks.
Regional manager Mark Duggan said they have developed strategies to ensure there will be no disruption to their services.
"At all stages clients will have a meal, whether they're delivered daily or weekly will depend on the situation and how the virus impacts the ACT," Mr Duggan said.
