COVID-19 Secure Transportation EP Information Center

ISDA has created the COVID-19 Secure Transportation and EP Information center. In the Center, readers will find articles – data, and metrics that can assist practitioners working in the Secure Transportation and Executive Protection profession. Our goal is to help the community navigate its way through the problems created by the pandemic.

The Center supplies Information shared by the ISDA membership, such as training in the age of Covid – sanitizing vehicles – and Information that can be used to develop a post-pandemic business model.

We will update the Center with Information that could benefit the community during these unprecedented times.

Thank you, and let’s all hope for a better 2021

Could You Be Driving With Germs?

Anyone who rents a vehicle or uses a rideshare program needs caution; there are serious health implications. A recent study found that these vehicles are bacteria-laden –everyday driver actions such as rolling down windows, buckling seatbelts, and grasping door handles and steering wheels in these vehicles can become a health hazard 

If they are, you can tell then they are entering a vehicle that has more germs than a toilet seat – that’s a pleasant thought.

Training and the Risk of COVID 
We thought this could be a useful tool for those providing or going to a training program. It is an interactive map that shows the risk level of attending an event, given the event size and location (the US only). The risk level is the estimated chance, from 0 percent to 100 percent, that at least one COVID-positive person will be present at an event.
