myTukar is pleased to provide a list of tailored advice for different scenarios as an example of how social distancing and other measures might be implemented by employers in Malaysia to help protect their workforce and customers from the Covid-19 while still continuing to work.
Social distancing should be maintained where possible but we recognize that on many workplaces, staff will not always be able to stay 6-feet away from each other or passengers.
If workers have to share enclosed spaces such as small office space, taxis and private cars, they should keep the window open for ventilation and they should be careful to avoid touching their face at all times. Good ventilation (i.e. keeping the windows open) and facing away from each other may help to reduce the risk.On leaving the enclosed space, they should wash their hands with soap and water for 20 seconds or more or use hand sanitizer when they cannot wash their hands.
For the use of private vehicles or when car pooling, if the journey is essential, such as travel to work, and there is no option but to share a car with people who are not part of the same household, journeys should be shared with the same individuals and with the minimum number of people at any one time.
Private vehicles that are used by people from multiple households should be cleaned regularly using gloves and standard cleaning products with particular emphasis on handles and other areas where passengers may touch surfaces.
Remember we must all do out part to flatten the curve and overcome this pandemic! We can then return to our normal lives!
