Taxis and public transportation
Taxis and public transport are essential services for many – including essential workers participating in our response to COVID-19.
They will keep operating while everything possible is done to keep social (physical) distance in the workplace.
We understand it is difficult to stay two metres apart in taxis. The Workers Safety and Compensation Commission (WSCC) are working with companies to recommend practical, affordable solutions to reduce risk for their drivers.
Members of the public are asked to wear fabric masks and sit in the back seat of taxis to reduce their risk and do their part to protect drivers.
