Moreover, standard Covid-19 safety measures must also be observed, which include social distancing and proper wearing of masks. Also, authorities reminded travelers that the maximum number of passengers in a vehicle is three, including the driver.  

Moreover, drivers are reminded to follow appropriate lanes at the security checkpoints.

They emphasized the role of residents in curbing the spread of the ongoing outbreak by adhering to health and safety measures and helping the government spread awareness and prevent cases of mass convergence through which cases are expected to increase by leaps and bounds, especially at a time when most countries that have earlier declared overcoming the spread of the virus, are showing signs of a marked increase in their infection as well as death rates. 

This is to emphasize that the battle against Covid-19 is far from over. That said, everyone needs to do their part and to focus on what they can do to contribute and not make the present situation much worse for everyone else.
