Passenger transport in Fiji remains an essential service to enable essential workers to get to and from their workplaces, as well as enabling other persons to access essential services such as health providers, pharmacies, supermarkets etc.
nature of taxi services means that drivers are limited in their ability to
maintain recommended physical distancing from passengers (at least 1.5 metres
physically apart), increasing the risks of them and their passengers being
exposed to COVID-19.
and providers should do everything that is reasonably practicable to reduce the
risks of their exposure and exposure of passengers and adopt a common sense
approach to this.
drivers and passengers must implement control measures to minimise the spread
of COVID-19 and ensure that other measures to address well known work health
and safety risks continue to be implemented.
