COVID-19 information Updated 29th November 2021
Face coverings – from today we understand that face coverings are once again required on public transport, we presume that this will include passengers travelling on coach travel, however we will update this page when we receive confirmation of this.
Ventilation on our vehicles – We recommend to our drivers that they should not use recirculated air in the heating or air conditioning of our vehicles and to open windows and roof lights if appropriate to do so.
Cleaning on our vehicles – We supply sanitising fluid in spray bottles for our drivers to spray the interior of their vehicles, with special care taken to spray touch points in the vehicles such as grab rails etc. Our vehicles are cleaned daily and between different groups of passengers.
Testing and advice on reducing risk
Staff – We have advised our staff on what they should do if they experience symptoms of Covid 19 and would recommend that any member of staff displaying symptoms should take a Covid 19 lateral flow test, if the results are not conclusive then we would recommend a PCR test should be undertaken and if the result of either test should be positive then the member of staff should self – isolate and not enter the Sewards Coaches depo or any of our vehicles.
Passengers – We would also ask that if any of our passengers start experiencing Covid 19 symptoms to please take a Lateral flow or PCR test and receive a negative result before travelling on our vehicles, we would also ask any passengers who have been in close contact with someone suffering from Covid 19 to refrain from travelling on our vehicles in an attempt to keep our other passengers and staff safe.
