The union representing public transport workers has called for face masks to be compulsory for commuters.
In a letter to the National Transport Authority (NTA), the National Bus and Rail Union (NBRU) has set out a list of measures it wants introduced as restrictions are set to be eased.
It says the compulsory wearing of facemasks is to "ensure maximum protection of frontline staff and enhance customer confidence".
It also says transport workers who have to interact with customers should have their temperature checked as they arrive for work.
It says those with a high temperature would be "provided with immediate assistance to access a COVID-19 test".
Any such worker with a high temperate should be sent home without loss of pay, the union says.
It also says that current disinfection measures should continue across public transport fleets, as should physical distancing as recommended by public health authorities.
The NBRU says there should be automatic 'no touch' gel dispenser units in all service access locations, as well as additional daily disinfection of fleets.
While it also says normal Monday to Friday timetables should resume immediately to increase capacity.
And it says 'vetting personnel' should be introduced at airports, to check potential virus carriers are not travelling on public transport.
"It is widely acknowledged that other countries are at different stages with the evolvement of easement measures.
"This is causing concern for frontline public transport staff that serve our airports.
"Therefore special measures (vetting personnel) will have to be implemented to ensure potential virus carriers are not travelling on public transport services that serve our airports", the NBRU explains.
