Any passenger who is not prepaired to follow the drivers instructions to sanitizer their hands will NOT be permitted to travel on our vehicles this is for the protect of all our customer/passengers and staff.
COVID-19 is the disease caused by a new strain of severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2) that was first identified in Wuhan City, China in December 2019. The incubation period of COVID-19 is between 2 and 14 days. This means that if a person remains well 14 days after contact with someone with confirmed coronavirus, they are unlikely to develop symptoms.
The following symptoms may develop in the 14 days after exposure to someone who has the COVID-19 infection: cough difficulty in breathing or shortness of breath fever (feeling hot or feverish or as measured by a doctor or nurse) The current evidence is that most cases appear to be mild. Generally, the infection will cause more severe symptoms in people with weakened immune systems, older people, and those with long-term health conditions such as diabetes, cancer and chronic lung disease
Transmission of COVID-19 is most likely to happen when there is close contact (within 2 metres) with a symptomatic individual. It is likely that the risk of transmission increases the longer someone has close contact with an infected person. Respiratory secretions produced when an infected person coughs or sneezes containing the virus are most likely to be the main means of transmission. There are two main routes by which COVID-19 can be transmitted: infection can be spread to people through close contact (within 2 metres) with infected individuals and respiratory droplets generated during coughing and sneezing it is also possible that someone may become infected by touching a surface, object or the hand of an infected person that has been contaminated with respiratory secretions and then touching their own mouth, nose, or eyes (such as touching a door knob or shaking hands then touching own face)
The best advice for avoiding catching or spreading COVID-19 remains: washing hands with soap and water often -for at least 20 seconds always washing hands when arriving home or at work use hand sanitiser gel (minimum 60% alcohol content) if soap and water are not available cover mouth and nose with a tissue (not hands) when coughing or sneezing put used tissues in the bin straight away and wash hands immediately afterwards trying to avoid close contact with people who are unwell not touching eyes, nose or mouth when hands are not clean
If anyone has the symptoms of COVID-19 they should not go to a GP surgery, pharmacy or hospital. They should: Use the 111 online coronavirus service, or call 111 to find out what to do next In Scotland call their GP or NHS 24 on 111 out of hours. In Wales call 111 (if available in your area) or 0845 46 47
we take the welfare of our customers and employees extremely seriously and are doing everything we sensibly can to keep them safe.
