The Land Transport Authority is urging all Fijians to continue wearing masks while onboard public service vehicles to maintain their continued safety from the COVID-19 virus.

Acting Chief Executive Officer, Irimaia Rokosawa says he is also urging public service vehicles drivers to continue playing their part in enforcing the wearing of masks and their support in this regard is what helped them to get to us where we are today.

Rokosawa says the lifting of the limitation on passenger capacity is a very good sign of how far the nation has progressed in the fight against COVID-19 but Fijians must still be vigilant of its presence around us.

He adds the announcements made during the press conference in reference to the easing of COVID-19 restrictions certainly demonstrates how the hard work put in by the frontliners and everyday Fijians has paid off.

Rokosawa further says while it is a happy moment for all of us, we must keep in the back of our mind that COVID-19 is still around us, it is still a dangerous virus and in order to live with it, we still need to take some precautions, to prevent any possibilities of another wave.
