Safer Travel Guidance for Passengers (Covid-19) – Update 25/07/2020

Safer Travel Guidance for Passengers (Covid-19) – Update 25/07/2020

As we all move back to returning to work the government have release information to ensure safer travel through walking, cycling, and travelling in vehicles or on public transport during the coronavirus outbreak.

How You Can Control the Conronavirus Outbreak

You can help control coronavirus and travel safely by walking and cycling, if you can. Where this is not possible, use public transport or drive. You can also help control coronavirus by:

  • working from home where possible
  • washing or sanitising your hands regularly
  • keeping your distance when you travel, where possible
  • avoiding the busiest routes, as well as busy times like the rush hour

You should not travel at all if you:

If you have any symptoms of coronavirus you should self-isolate at home and arrange to have a test to see if you have coronavirus.

If anyone in your household or support bubble has symptoms of coronavirus you should self-isolate.

Social Distancing

You should maintain a 2 metre distance where possible, because the risk of transmission is small at this distance.

If you cannot keep a 2 metre distance, reduce the risk to yourself and others by maintaining a 1 metre distance where possible, and taking suitable precautions.

Help keep yourself, other passengers and transport staff safe, by taking the following precautions:

  • limit the number of people or households that you come into contact with, for example by avoiding the busiest routes, as well as busy times like the rush hour
  • wash or sanitise your hands regularly
  • use a face covering on public transport and in substantially enclosed areas of transport hubs
  • avoid touching your face
  • cover your mouth and nose with a tissue or the inside of your elbow when coughing or sneezing
  • travel side by side or behind other people, rather than facing them, where seating arrangements allow
  • touch as few surfaces as possible
  • stay outdoors, rather than indoors, where possible
  • minimise the time spent close to other people, where possible
  • avoid loud talking, shouting or singing
  • dispose of waste safely, including items such as used disposable face coverings
