CAPE TOWN –Air travellers will notice airport staff wearing reflector jackets with the name “Covid-19 Monitor” printed on it, but who are they and what do they do?
Transport minister Fikile Mbalula announced the reopening of seven more airports and outlined the screening and flight safety procedures.
The Covid-19 Monitors are part of Airports Company South Africa (ACSA) staff that will be located on the floor to help travellers and oversee compliance at the airport.
“Their focus is the passenger journey, from the time the passenger gets to the airport, their departure and when they arrive back at the airport,” said Colin Naidoo, senior manager of corporate affairs for King Shaka International Airport for ACSA.
“Covid-19 Monitors are meant to ensure compliance with the required regulations while providing assurance and comfort to the passenger that our facility is fully compliant and safe.
“They monitor compliance with physical distancing, use of PPE, sanitisation and availability of sanitisers,” he said.
