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 and consumers by:
  • Limiting physical contact with Delivery partners via Contactless Delivery.
  • Suspending GrabCar services temporarily.
  • Partnering with vendors nationwide to provide discounted medical and cleaning supplies or services for Merchant-partners.
  • Encouraging Partners to check their temperature daily and get medical help if they are unwell.
  • Updating our Help Centre to allow anyone to easily notify us of any person on our platform who appears to be unwell.


We’re protecting our Driver- and Delivery-partners by:
  • Augmenting 4W driver’s financial capacity through the Cash Loan program which is being repurposed to serve as an “Emergency Loan.” Drivers may loan from PHP 5k up to 10k.
  • Providing financial assistance in case of quarantine or hospitalisation. (Upcoming)


We’re helping merchants maintain their operations by:
  • Driving more sales for the local and independent Merchant-partners currently on our platform.
  • Speeding up the process of bringing local merchants onto Grab to reach a wider consumer base.


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.

Important information for Consumers and Passengers

For GrabFood, we have:


Rolled out Contactless Delivery and Takeaway

  • With GrabChat, you can tell our Delivery-partner where to drop off your food or order e.g. at the door.
  • This helps to minimise physical contact.


Educated our partners (Merchants and Delivery-partners) about food hygiene

  • Done virtually via Grab channels.


Educated our partners to maintain Social Distancing

  • No more than 10 people should be in one place.
  • To observe a 1-meter distance as prescribed by DOTr.

For Grab rides, we have:

Temporarily suspended GrabCar services until further notice to comply with recent guidelines of DOTr and LTFRB.

For overall precaution, we have:

Updated the Grab Help Centre in our app so anyone can make a report if they notice our partner might be unwell, after which:

  1. An agent will contact the partner;
  2. If the partner confirms they are unwell, we will temporarily suspend their account;
  3. The partner will have their account restored after they submit a Medical Certificate that proves they are free from COVID-19.
