All transport cooperatives and operators in Central Luzon were reminded to follow health and safety protocols amid the spread of the new strain of Covid-19 from the United Kingdom.
In a memorandum, Regional Director Ahmed Cuizon of the Land Transportation Franchising and Regulatory Board in Central Luzon instructed transport cooperatives and operators “to strictly implement safety and health protocols pursuant to LTFRB memorandum circular issuances and as set by the Inter-Agency Task Force for the Management of Emerging Infectious Diseases to prevent the spread of the virus in our public transportation.”
“As recommended by health experts, please strictly comply with the seven commandments to ensure that our commuters, operators, drivers and personnel will be spared from the virus,” Cuizon said.
The following are the seven Covid-19 commandments among transport operators and drivers:
