As the world is trying to cope with the impact of the novel coronavirus, there is a significant portion of the population trying to keep their loved ones safe. While the majority of the affected population is working from home, working remotely isn’t an option in some instances. If you need to use or drive for a rideshare service, do so safely.
Here are some safety tips you need to follow if you’re using or driving for a rideshare service such as Lyft or Uber:
If you are driving a vehicle, then implement these coronavirus safety tips:
While it sounds like a pretty obvious tip, people still need to be aware of this. No reason is viable enough for you to risk your life as well as other people’s lives. Don’t drive if you are sick.
Even if you have cleaned it recently, try to keep your vehicle as clean as possible. Invest in a reliable disinfectant and let the liquid sit on the surface for 15 minutes before wiping it dry.
Try to minimize the contact between your vehicle and passengers by opening the door yourself. Wear gloves and disinfect door handles before and after rides.
A minor mistake and you can be responsible for putting a lot of lives at risk. So restrain yourself from riding if you have any symptoms.
Make sure to wear full-sleeve clothes, gloves, and a mask while you are out using a rideshare service. These clothes need to be taken off and contained separately to wash as soon as possible.
Keep contact at a bare minimum and ask the driver to open the door or to put the windows down. Use a handkerchief or tissue while sneezing.
