“When a truck comes from what we call ‘hot zone’, that is to say, where there are infections every day, such as the Buenos Aires metropolitan area, or the city of Rosario, upon entering, a security strip is placed on them to guarantee that the driver will go down and would not have direct contact with anyone, “he explained in dialogue with A24 this Wednesday.
In addition to the sash, which is placed transversely to the driver’s side door in the vehicle cabin, drivers they must wear masks.
“Logically, the driver can open the door and get off, in case of an emergency or some need, but the measure helps us keep track and prevent contagion from occurring, “explained the mayor and recalled that currently the city does not present cases of COVID-19. “Only applies to those who they load and unload merchandise “, clarified Bertellys.
