Working Together to Prevent the Spread of COVID-19

As you may be aware, COVID-19 has affected some residents in the Pacific Northwest, including a few in Oregon.

To prevent the spread of COVID-19, we all need to work together. We are recommending your vanpool group or carpool partners take steps in for a healthier commute.

  1. Visit the CDC website for the latest information on what to do if you or a family member feel sick, or you believe you may have been exposed to the virus. 
  2. We are recommending drivers and participants of carpools and vanpools use disinfectant wipes and spray to clean vehicles and carry hand sanitizer. Before and after the commute, we recommend you wipe down vehicle surface areas including: door handles (inside and out), steering wheel, armrests, seatbelts/seatbelt buckles, seats, and knobs (including climate control, radio, glove box, etc.). Key fobs and fuel cards should also be wiped down.

For those using Valley Vanpool:

If your vanpool group is missing a driver or needs to be parked for an unknown period of time (more than one week) due to employer-requested telecommute or illness, please send an email to [email protected] and provide a short description of your situation. We will work with your group to explore available options.

It’s important to know the facts. Additional information is available on the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention website. For the latest on the State of Oregon’s response to the virus, visit the State’s COVID-19 resource page.
