COVID-19 EOC Transportation Policy

COVID-19 EOC Transportation Policy

Statement

Rochester EOC (REOC) has implemented a transportation policy aimed at limiting the transmission of disease, due to the outbreak of the COVID-19 virus and subsequent pandemic. Decisions are guided by many factors including but not limited to: the epidemiology of the disease, the disease’s response (if any) to anti-viral or other medications, the availability of effective medications, specific at-risk groups, and the proximity of confirmed infection to a particular locale.

The REOC Dean/Executive Director, in consultation with SUNY Brockport and the University Center for Academic and Workforce Development (UCAWD), determined the appropriate initiation and requirement of a transportation policy and other safety measures to implement.  Federal, state, and local governing authorities may provide guidance in making the determination, and those authorities are likely to follow Center for Disease Control (CDC) and World Health Organization (WHO) guidelines. In addition, measures regarding social distancing and donning of personal protective equipment (PPE) have been implemented based on the epidemiology of the disease.
