Social distancing is saving lives. It is important that we as a collective continue our efforts to practice social distancing and promote the effect that it is having on the slowdown and prevention of the transmission of COVID-19.

Why is social distancing necessary?

Social distancing is important because coronavirus spreads when an infected person coughs small droplets packed with the virus - into the air. These can be breathed in, or can cause an infection if you touch a surface they have landed on, and then touch your face with unwashed hands.

Social distancing reduces transmission of the virus effectively and lessens the impact on already stretched healthcare services.

Social distancing is particularly important because we do not know how much transmission is occurring from individuals displaying no or few symptoms. As a result, we should not try and self-determine whether or not we pose an infection risk. Instead, we should all take social distancing seriously, and support each other to follow these guidelines.

For the mobility sector this is a challenging time, but with experts agreeing that it is safer to avoid public transport, where possible independent transport should be utilised for essential journeys.

The Move Mee service enables customers who need to undertake essential journeys to do so entirely contact-free, avoiding all personal interactions normally associated with renting a vehicle. As the entire process is conducted via the app – including the key to open the vehicle, the customer never needs to interact with rental staff, ensuring that they can easily observe social distancing guidelines.

The corona virus is already having an unprecedented effect on the global travel market and the wider economy, as well as changing how we do things in many aspects of life. Move Mee is ready to provide essential mobility services as and when our customers need them, with their safety of paramount importance.
