Coronavirus (COVID-19): Update for Point to Point Transport Industry
Updated: Mar 19, 2020
The Point to Point Transport Commission is directing point to point drivers to a COVID-19 Fact Sheet for the Point to Point Industry, which offers information and advice about the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak.
For ongoing advice, Point to Point Transport drivers should refer to the Australian Health Department advice including:
Drivers do not need to wear a mask if you are healthy
Wash hands often with soap and water
The use of alcohol-based hand sanitiser is advised between hand washes and after opening and closing doors, moving luggage, exchanging payment and after personal contact
Drivers should employ standard cleaning practices at the end of each shift, as part of good hygiene practice by wiping down surfaces with disinfectant
In the event of a passenger spreading droplets (such as sneezing, coughing or vomiting), clean surfaces with appropriate disinfectant wipes so that the potential spread of infection can be minimised
Customers are encouraged to use contactless payments where possible, to further reduce chances of community spread
For those services that do not offer contactless payment, we are advising people to wash their hands or use hand sanitiser to limit the spread of viruses.
