KHDA COVID-19 transport protocols
In line with KHDA protocols, the following safety measures will be undertaken:
- Temperature will be scanned for anyone getting onto the bus. Anyone with a fever ≥37.50 C will be denied entry.
- Buses will be used at half capacity only
- Bus assistants who are older than 60 years, suffering from serious chronic diseases or who are immunocompromised will not be on duty
- All bus riders need to wear masks
- Bus hygiene should be maintained by following the appropriate sanitisation and physical distancing standards. For example, seat belts, arm rests, handles and rails. should be sanitised after each use, in accordance with RTA’s relevant guidelines for public transportation.
- For buses using swipe cards for registration, the cards and the swipe machine will be constantly disinfected, and the process supervised by the bus attendant
- There will be adequate signage inside the bus to users towards hygiene practices such as respiratory hygiene, waste management and more
- If a rider begins to show symptoms of COVID-19 while taking the bus, the rider is considered a probable COVID-19 case. The immediate measure is to ensure the individual is seated at two metres away from the rest. The bus attendant will immediately inform us, and we will communicate with parents/guardians. If the trip was for drop off at home, the individual should be dropped off first. If the trip was for drop off at campus, the individual should be isolated and sent home. He/she cannot return until the PCR result is obtained. If the result is negative, the he/she should not return to campus until they are symptom-free. If the result is positive, the traced contacts of the individual, including staff, and other riders on the bus are considered close contacts. They should all commence the 14-day quarantine counted from the day of the positive PCR test.
