Ten Tips for Drivers

Driving a neighbour to a health care appointment? Eynsham Car Scheme offers 10 tips to help keep everyone safe:    

Before the drive

  • Check that no-one in your household or your passenger’s household has signs of the virus -new continuous cough, high temperature, loss of sense of taste and smell. If yes call NHS 111 and do not make the journey.  
  • Do wash your hands and ensure your car is clean – open the windows and wipe down all likely touch points for you and your passenger. Wash your hands again.

Getting together

  • Ensure you are both wearing a mask – disposable masks are better – you can then both use new ones for the return journey. 
  • Ask your passenger to open the (sanitised) door and sit in the back of the car behind the passenger seat. If your passenger needs help to get into/out of the car, it is better that you are wearing disposable gloves.
  • Do not re-circulate air in the car – keep the driver window and rear window behind front passenger seat open a few inches.

At the appointment

  • Don’t accompany your passenger into a clinical site.

Going home

  • We leave the site or park conveniently and take mobile phones so the passenger or clinic can ring to say they are ready.
  • Do have a bag to dispose of used masks and use fresh ones for the return. 
  • Wash your hands and sanitise the touch points in the car after your journey. 
  • Wash your hands again.
