The Land Transport Authority of Fiji has urged drivers, as well as others, to remain in their specified containment zones as per advice from the Ministry of Health and Medical Services in order to prevent the spread of the deadly COVID-19 virus.
The containment zones namely, Lami, Suva, Nausori, Nadi and Lautoka have been in effect since 4am, Monday, 26th April 2021 and will remain in effect unless advised otherwise by the Ministry of Health.
LTA CEO, Samuel Simpson says the idea behind these containment zones is to act as a precautionary measure to prevent the COVID-19 virus from spreading to other parts of Fiji.
He says to his knowledge, each containment zone has suppliers of essential items such as food, medication and money.
Simpson has also reminded Fijians to ensure that they are practising proper COVID-19 safety measures such as wearing a mask, washing or sanitising their hands as often as possible, and maintaining a proper social distance while travelling on public transport.
Meanwhile buses and minibuses are to only operate at 50 percent capacity, and taxis are to have a maximum of 3 passengers in their vehicles, at any given time in order to abide by proper social distancing rules.
