Amy Khor on protecting taxi and private-hire drivers who take passengers to and from PCR tests

There is no need for extra precautionary measures, such as donning full personal protective equipment, when taxi and private-hire drivers ferry people to and from COVID-19 polymerase chain reaction (PCR) test sites. Responding to Parliamentary questions on Wednesday (Nov 3), Senior Minister of State for Transport Amy Khor said such passengers should tell drivers about their health status, and drivers have been advised to wind down the windows and clean their vehicles between trips. These measures have been deemed sufficient to minimise the risk of in-vehicle transmission of COVID-19. Taxi and private-hire operators provide support for drivers who contract the virus and have to self-isolate. This includes rental waivers and prolonged medical leave insurance coverage.
