Just goes to show bus drivers are worried for their health. I know there's been lots of praise (rightly) for emergency service workers, but bus drivers are unsung heroes too in my opinion.
Lots of folk out there, outside of the obvious ones, doing vital work to keep the country going.
People working in supermarkets, pharmacies, factories, agriculture, all steps of the supply chain, working in power plants, water treatment plants, ISP's and datacenters, etc., etc.
Things will get much worse if any of these fail. Hopefully this is a reminder to everyone of the vital work all these people play in our lives.
For the rest of us, the most "heroic" thing we can do, is stay at home if we can and stay out of everyone elses way.
For Bus Drivers, I wonder if they could jerryrig a complete shield for the drivers cab. Big plastic sheet might do the job. Perhaps temporarily cancel fare collection, turn it into something more like the Luas.
Which has me thinking, I assume they have suspended ticket checking on the Luas and Dart.
