Worried about the Coronavirus?

Some of the Carrot Cars drivers have shown the increasing concern about the Coronavirus (COVID-19) that has lately shaken the world. Here we would like to share some advice and procedures to give you the pice of mind.

Don’t panic!

Statistically, you have a much much bigger chance to win a lottery’s jackpot, than catch the Coronavirus; therefore, do not panic. Even if there is a larger-scale outbreak in the UK, then remember that you are in the country that has the best medical establishment in the world!

What can you do to minimise the risk?

  • Wash your hands and use Anti-bacterial sanitizer gel (Available to buy at the Driver Managers’ office)
  • Avoid shaking people’s hands. If a customer wants to shake your hand, then politely tell them that unfortunately, it is a company’s policy not to allow any drivers to shake hands, until the Coronavirus in under the control. Please apologize and tell then that you don’t mean to be rude in any way!
  • Use the antibacterial spray and towels, to clean your vehicle’s door handles after every time a customer leaves the car.

What are the symptoms of the Coronavirus? 

  • Cough
  • High-temperature
  • Shortness of breath

But these symptoms do not necessarily mean you have the illness. The symptoms are similar to other illnesses that are much more common, such as cold and flu.

However, if you do have those symptoms then you only need to stay away from public places (self-isolate) if advised to by the 111 online coronavirus service or a medical professional. Please do not come to work!
