We have a high standard for cleanliness and safety and are committed to upholding those standards with our rigorous, multi-step vehicle-cleaning process. Enhanced cleaning protocols have been put in place as a result of COVID-19. These protocols apply to our cars, customer areas and buses, and are based on current local health and government guidelines.
Additionally, we are advising our employees to take simple hygiene steps to help prevent the spread of the virus, including regular hand washing and the use of alcohol-based hand sanitizer, which we are providing at our locations
We are also recommending that employees avoid handshakes or making any other welcoming gestures that require personal touch, and like always, they should not come to work if they feel unwell. They should stay at home and contact their local health provider. This is also the advice if they have recently been to a high-risk area or have been in contact with someone who has.
