Dear Grab community,

We recognise the huge impact that the coronavirus (COVID-19) has caused to your daily lives. We are doing everything we come across Southeast Asia to fight this global pandemic with you.

We’re raising safety and hygiene standards for our passengers and customers by:
  • Limiting physical contact with Delivery-partners via Contactless Delivery, Contactless Payment (with OVO), and GrabFood pick-up.
  • Providing face masks and hand sanitisers to Driver- and Delivery-partners. We have distributed over 1 million pieces across the region and are doing our best to get more.
  • Launching a GrabFood Delivery Statement Card that states the time of preparation, as well as names and temperature of people who handled your food order.
  • Partnering with vendors nationwide to provide discounted medical and cleaning supplies or services for Merchant-partners.
  • Encouraging our Partners to check their temperature daily at our temperature monitoring stations.
  • Temporarily suspending the accounts of Partners who confirm they are unwell until they submit a medical certificate to prove they are free from COVID-19.

We’re protecting our Driver- and Delivery-partners by:
  • Offering medical subsidies to encourage those who feel unwell to see a doctor immediately.
  • Providing financial assistance in case of quarantine or hospitalisation.

04

We’re collaborating with local authorities and government bodies by:
  • Providing 24/7 contact tracing support.
  • Cascading the latest industry safety and hygiene standards to our partners.
  • Temporarily suspending the accounts of Partners who confirm they are unwell until they submit a medical certificate to prove they are free from COVID-19.
