Open Wounds Policy

This document describes Sun Van’s Open Wounds policy. 

When using Sun Van, all passengers need to ensure that all sores and open wounds are properly covered. Any passenger, including passengers with disabilities, may be refused access to public transportation if visible leakage of body fluid is occurring while at the pick-up location. The passenger may also be requested to exit the vehicle if leakage occurs after they have boarded as such leakage can create a biohazard to other passengers.

Even when covered, the existence of wounds and sores may limit securing a mobility device on all securement points. If the sores and wounds are properly covered, the operator shall secure as many points as possible and transport the passenger.
