  • Share vehicles with the same individuals and with the minimum number of people at any one time.
  • Wherever possible maintain a distance of two metres and avoid touching their face.
  • Maintain good ventilation (i.e. keeping the windows open) and face away from each other during the journey.
  • Wash their hands for 20 seconds using soap and water, or hand sanitiser if soap and water are not available, before entering and after getting out of the vehicle.
  • Regularly clean the vehicle using gloves and standard cleaning products, with particular emphasis on handles and other surfaces which may be touched during the journey.
  • Communicate precautions and expectations to staff and passengers clearly.
