Transporting firms, passengers reminded of Covid protocols

The Ministry of Public Works and Transport has reminded transporting businesses and all passengers to adhere to health measures to prevent the spread of Covid-19 by wearing masks, maintaining distancing and frequently sanitising hands.

In a notice on October 4, the ministry said passengers must keep a personal distance of at least 1.5m. Transporting businesses must reduce the number of passengers in each vehicle to a minimum and regularly disinfect passenger seats, waiting lounge, reception and restrooms.

Drivers must disinfect the exterior and interior of the vehicles including door handles, seats and other parts that passengers tend to touch.

The drivers and administrative staff have to monitor their health and wear face masks at all time while on duty. Should staff members have health problems, they shall be permitted to take leave and advised to continue monitoring their health.

All passengers have to take their temperature, sanitise hands and wear masks before boarding.

“If any passenger has a fever of over 37.2 degree Celsius, cough, sore throat or breathing difficulty, that passenger must not be allowed to board the vehicle and shall be referred to the nearest health centre immediately or contact the Ministry of Health’s 115 hotline,” it said.
