COVID-19 together

Stay updated about our efforts to keep you safe.

Dear Grab community,

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


We’re raising safety and hygiene standards for our passengers by:
  • Providing face masks and hand sanitisers to Driver-partners. We have distributed over 1 million pieces across the region, and are doing our best to get more.
  • Encouraging our Driver-Partners to get medical help if they are unwell.
  • Temporarily suspending the accounts of Driver-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:
  • Providing financial assistance in case of quarantine or hospitalisation if they test positive for COVID-19.


We’re supporting Merchant-partners who are experiencing a decrease in in-store dining by:
  • Promoting and marketing local and independent merchants on our platform.
  • Reworking our onboarding process so more local merchants can join our platform faster.


We are working with local authorities to beat the spread of COVID-19. In every country, our safety team is on call 24/7 to support local authorities with contact tracing requests.
