MOCI obliges delivery companies to follow strict precautionary measures

By QLNews

Under efforts focused on ensuring the safety of the citizens and residents in Qatar, the Ministry of Commerce and Industry (MOCI) has urged all companies dealing with delivery orders to adhere to a set of precautionary measures.

The preventive measures have been outlined in a tweet shared by the Ministry on its official Twitter page.

According to the notice posted in the tweet, all delivery companies must take the following measures:

-       Check the body temperature of delivery personnel twice a day.

-       Make sure delivery personnel are committed to health and safety conditions, in particular wearing masks and medical gloves.

-       Ensure the full name of the delivery person is written on the order.

-       The vehicles used for delivery must be sterilized.

-       Orders should be placed inside disposable plastic bags before delivering them to consumers.

This adds to the series of efforts MOCI has taken in recent days as Qatar intensifies its fight against the novel coronavirus (COVID-19).

Earlier this week, MOCI issued social distancing guidelines for retail outlets and also announced an extension for product returns and exchanges.

Apart from that the Ministry also took measures to protect consumers in current times by setting maximum prices for products such as hand sanitizers, wipes and soaps.

Consumers can report any violations of these decisions via the number 16001 or email: infomoci.gov.qa. They can also reach out to the Ministry through its official social media channels.

Here's everything you need to know about the virus, including ways to protect yourself.
