Warwickshire County Council would like to update you on the current national and local picture with regard to COVID-19, and offer some local advice to support the actions that you are taking to protect the people you transport and your staff, as the situation evolves.
The key message from WCC is that if one of your passengers presents with the symptoms listed below, they should not be transported. If one of their household had the symptoms they should not be transported either.
The staff on the route should inform the family that this is the case, then report this to their managers and WCC Transport Operations.
Key information about the national and local picture with links to key guidance and resources can be found here (this is updated regularly). Public Health England and our local NHS organisations are focusing on identifying close contacts of cases, and ensuring that they self-isolate, as a precautionary measure, and that they are tested if they become unwell.
The majority of people who become unwell with COVID (~85%) have a mild illness, but we know that older people and those with long term conditions are more at risk of serious illness.
