Some of the biggest questions the industry faces as it proceeds into the new school year relate to the health screening of students at bus stops. How do you determine if students have COVID-19 symptoms before they board the school bus? And if they do show signs, what then? Visit stnonline.com/go/79 to read what transportation directors and health experts have to say on this topic.


Meanwhile, Oregon student transportation directors are attempting to make sense of the state requirements that drivers must wear face masks, maintain three feet of social distancing between students, and perform visual health screening of students before they are allowed to board.

WHY USE THREAD WITH ANTIMICROBIAL


PROTECTION? Many end-use applications that are sewn can harbor microbes such as odor and stain causing bacteria. Bacteria can grow in the crevices of these products especially in the seam itself. We have partnered with Microban©


Technology to


provide a product that inhibits the growth of micro organisms that can lead to early product failure.


Guardian thread helps prevent product deterioration, because products stay cleaner, fresher and degrade much less rapidly. These benefits make it perfect for many different applications in transportation.


This thread technology creates a defense system in sewn products at the seam, where products are vulnerable to microbes.
