Ferries serve passengers without exceeding 50 percent of their capacity and all passengers have to wear facial masks during their journey. Besides, hand sanitizer gels for passengers must be equipped on ferries.
It is very important to daily spray disinfection before and after each trip and ensure keeping a safe distance among passengers at the waiting areas according to regulations.
