Requiring two staff members with first aid/CPR during transportation

Please consider adding an exception so that only one staff member with first aid and CPR be required when transporting children. Requiring two people on each van or bus will create a financial hardship in paying extra salaries and also may take staff away from other areas.  

22VAC40-185-530 First aid training, cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR)

C. There shall be at least two staff members who meet the requirements of subsection A of this section present on the premises during the center's hours of operation, on fieldtrips, and wherever children are in care. EXCEPTION: When on field trips only one staff member shall be required to have first aid and CPR.
