The MoTC has stressed the need for all operators of public transport to comply with the precautionary measures stipulated by the Ministry of Public Health, run a Covid-19 test for all those who work in the public transit system and at stations, and ensure a negative result before allowing them to go back to work.

The measures also include checking their body temperatures daily and continuously, isolating those who exhibit disease symptoms and contacting the authorities concerned for any necessary precautionary and health measures.

The MoTC has also stressed that operators need to provide ‘compliance officers’ according to the capacity determined for public transport (buses, Metro and stations). These officers will be responsible for ensuring compliance with all precautionary measures and that they are being followed by public transit users, who must avoid crowding.
