Our drivers are taking universal precautions throughout the day as they transport passengers to and from medical appointments. They have been provided with gloves, masks, hand sanitizer and disinfecting wipes. They are instructed to wear gloves and change them frequently.
Drivers are encouraged to wash their hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds after using the restroom, blowing their nose or coughing. If washing hands is not convenient, they are to use hand sanitizer that is alcohol based. Hand sanitizers with an alcohol concentration of 60-90 % are more effective at killing germs.
Drivers are instructed to cover their mouth and nose with a tissue if they sneeze and dispose of any used tissues. If tissues are not available, elbow is best.
Drivers are instructed to sanitize their vehicle with disinfecting wipes after each transport on frequently used surfaces, such as steering wheel, gear shift, door handles, arm rests and their wheelchair.
Any driver that does not feel well (fever, cough or shortness of breath) has been advised to stay home until they are medically cleared.
