  1. Frequently touched areas of the coin carts, such as door knobs and handrails, will be disinfected regularly;
  2. Hand sanitisers will be provided to users;
  3. User’s body temperature will be checked before entering the Coin Carts; only users with normal body temperature will be admitted into the Coin Carts;
  4. Users must wear masks at any time inside the Coin Carts; and
  5. Appropriate queuing arrangement to minimise group gathering will be implemented; users queuing outside the Coin Carts will have to maintain an appropriate distance from each other.
