Free public transport for those fighting the coronavirus

The government is allowing workers who are fighting against the coronavirus free transportation on public lines.


New regulations came into effect on Tuesday evening to allow those fighting against the coronavirus free travel on public transport. The new rules include social workers, those working in child welfare and protection services, public servants, members of the army and police officers.

Workers will now be allowed to use local, regional and national transportation services without purchasing a ticket.

Those who are within the above-mentioned sectors must have their employer fill out a form attached to the government decree. They will have to present this with their identification documents to conductors.

The regulation will be in place, along with other measures such as the curfew, until January 11, but may be extended in the future.
