The Land Transport Authority says all precautionary measures in place due to COVID-19 remain in place and Fijians should continue being vigilant and not relax just because there have been no new case.
LTA CEO, Samuel Simpson says wearing masks, taking a window seat and leaving a space in front and behind oneself while in a bus are all effective measures to avoid possible infection.
He says many countries are already being hit by the second wave of the virus which has killed over 300,000 people worldwide so people must not take their safety and the safety of their families lightly.
The Prime Minister Voreqe Bainimarama had said that bus operators, drivers, and riders must take measures to ensure physical distancing is practiced on all of Fiji’s buses.
He had also said that passengers should spread out as much as possible, sanitize their seats and not to come into contact with others.
The LTA has also confirmed that they are now only letting 20 people at a time into their offices and this will mean a slight increase in waiting time.
They say their staff will ensure that there is a 2-metre distance between the excess people that line up outside.
LTA says it is a necessary precaution that they must adhere to for the safety of all Fijians.
