Minibus, taxi drivers, speedboat operators now required to be vaccinated
The operators of public transportation, such as minibus operators, taxi drivers, and speedboat operators, will now be required to be fully vaccinated in order to continue to operate.
The new rule takes effect on August 1.
The new rule, signed by Minister of Health Dr Frank Anthony states: “every operator and conductor of any transportation service shall be vaccinated and have in their possession an official identifications document and their vaccination card and shall produce these documents when requested to so by a Police officer or any person authorised by the Minister of Health.”
The operators and conductors will be responsible for ensuring their passengers wear a face mask.
