The concern of #coronavirus is on the rise, and rideshare drivers may be at heightened risk due to the amount of contact they have with the general public. Here are three easy tips on how to protect yourself and others.
Use Sanitizing Wipes After Each Passenger Take a few minutes between riders to wipe down door handles, seat belts, headrests and the back of the seats. This quick step can help significantly reduce the chance of virus transmission.
Keep Gloves Handy If you live in or near a major city, chances are you’ll have to pick someone up from the airport at some point. If your rider needs help loading luggage into the car, you may want to use gloves. The virus spreads through infectious droplets, so it’s better to be safe than sorry!
Use Hand Sanitizer One of the best ways to prevent contracting COVID-19 is to make sure you are washing your hands thoroughly. However, when you are on the road, it’s not always that easy to access soap and water. Hand sanitizer is your next best bet. Keeping one in the back for passengers is a good idea, too.
