As part of the COVID-19 safety protocols, operators must provide single-use gloves, hand-sanitizers, and disinfectant wipes at e-scooter rental sites, while they should also carry out periodic health checks to ensure employees are free from the virus.
Face masks and gloves are mandatory for staff during working hours.
Inspections will be stepped-up to ensure compliance with the rules and legal action will be taken against violators.
