As school districts across the U.S. prepare for a return to classrooms this fall, a new, more aggressive variant of COVID-19 is causing cases to rise once again.
More than 69.7% of K-12 students are attending traditional, in-person learning. As School Bus Fleet previously reported, in March, the remote learning model has continued to decline as revised social distancing guidelines are expected to accelerate school reopening.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) issued updated school reopening guidance, that encouraged a safe return to in-person learning for the start of the 2021-22 school year and for schools to maintain at least 3 feet of physical distance between students within classrooms, combined with indoor mask wearing by people who are not fully vaccinated, to reduce transmission risk.
Regardless of a school’s mask policy, the CDC states that all passengers and drivers must wear a mask on school buses, including on buses operated by public and private school systems, subject to the exclusions and exemptions in CDC’s Order. For example, if a student attends a school where mask use is not required due to vaccination status (e.g., a high school with a high rate of vaccination among students and staff), the student is still required to wear a mask on the school bus.
We are entering a no-mask world again, but that does NOT mean viruses and bacteria are all disappearing! Bailey’s Zero Hazard solution kills MANY, MANY other germs other than just COVID-19 including the Delta Variant.
