Be Safe and Stay Safe
Private-hire and taxi drivers have higher chances of catching the virus as we operate in an enclosed environment and have close contact with people from everywhere.
Some things that we can do to protect ourselves
- Wear a mask
- Offer rider a mask if they are having a cough or runny nose
- Wash your hands frequently
- Keep your car clean. Sanitise your vehicle daily
- If you are sick, go see the doctor soonest.
