22 February – Updated COVID Guidelines

Given the Government’s announcement yesterday of the way ahead and their publication of ‘Living with Covid’ document, N&DCT is moving forward in a phased way. We remain cautious due to the current high infection rates in the area and the fact that most of our members fall in the at-risk category.

From Thursday 24th February:

  • Drivers will continue to undertake twice-weekly lateral flow tests plus a test on the day of a drive. They will continue to wear masks in the vehicle.
  • Passengers should continue to wear masks on the buses.

From 1st April:

  • Drivers will continue to wear a mask.
  • Passengers will be invited to wear a mask.

We will keep these requirements under review as and when the Government and Community Transport Association publish further guidance.
