FORT VALLEY, Ga. — School bus manufacturer Blue Bird is offering a free, downloadable guide with best practices for disinfecting school buses.

The Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends that routine cleaning and disinfection procedures (e.g. using cleaners and water to pre-clean surfaces prior to applying an EPA-registered disinfectant to frequently touched surfaces as indicated on the product’s label) are appropriate to minimize the spread and cross-contamination of common bacterial and viral pathogens, Blue Bird noted in a news release.

Blue Bird created this one-page downloadable guide to help school bus owners properly disinfect their buses. Tips include using gloves, eye protection, and other necessary personal protective equipment to prevent direct contact with chemicals; and ensuring proper ventilation in the area when cleaning with chemicals per the guidelines on the label or insert of the chemicals being used.
