COVID-19 & DRIVING VEHICLES USED FOR UNIVERSITY BUSINESS


In University-owned vehicles, there should only be one person per vehicle unless the vehicle is large enough to maintain 2 meters between occupants.  If any of the work activities do not permit 2 meters physical distancing, then contact Environment, Health and Safety for guidance at ucsafety@ucalgary.ca.

  • Where multiple occupants are in a vehicle, it is strongly recommended that non-medical masks be worn at all times.  If 2 meters physical distancing cannot be maintained, wearing a non-medical mask is required.
  • Disinfect vehicle touchpoints daily and also areas between driver/passengers with disinfectant wipes.  Touchpoints include:
    • Door handles
    • Steering wheel and controls (including gear shift)
    • Seatbelts

If you are using a rental or personal vehicle for University business, please maintain the same social distancing measures as outlined above.

Please ensure that you have completed the COVID-19 Field Work Hazard and Control Register prior to driving on University business.
