Buses are cleaned and disinfected using commercial grade products such as Touch Point wipes, Avistat-D and Lemon Quat spray. All seats and high-touch surfaces are wiped thoroughly with these products after each trip.
Face coverings are required on public transportation including school buses. The CDC order for mandatory use of face coverings on public transit applies to school buses until lifted by the federal government and cannot be waived by state or local authorities. (CDC, Issued 2/1/2021)
Oregon Health Authority quarantine rules for school buses: A person who is diagnosed with COVID-19 will be asked to quarantine. Unvaccinated close contacts of a person who is diagnosed with COVID-19 will be asked to quarantine. On the bus, a close contact is anyone sitting within 6 ft of the person diagnosed with COVID-19. Bus riders will be accounted for in daily bus logs, and bus camera recordings will be reviewed to determine close contacts. Vaccinated close contacts will not be asked to quarantine.
