COVID-19 Precautions for driver and passenger safety - HISTORIC AND IF REQUIRED FOR INFORMATION ONLY DURING THE 2020-21 PANDEMIC

Guidance issued by our licencing authority South Oxfordshire District Council (SODC)

The Department for Transport (DfT) has confirmed that:

As a Private Hire business, CCE Cars do undertake home to school transport and the transport of ‘extremely vulnerable’ people and so are considered Critical Workers.

We would like to take the opportunity to provide advice with a view to protecting you, the passenger and your driver:

  1. clean those parts of the vehicle that the driver or passengers may have touched, for example, door handles, payment devices, protective screens, buttons, seats

  2. open doors / windows to ventilate the car for 5 minutes

  3. wash hands for at least 20 seconds or use hand sanitiser

Use of partitions or screens in vehicles
There is no evidence available that demonstrates that partitions in vehicles reduces the risk of transmission of infection, as they do not provide a fully sealed compartment which completely separates the driver from the passenger. Therefore, whilst it is possible that partitions may reduce the risk of transmission of infection, please note that the risk would not be eliminated entirely.
