In a Joint Memorandum Circular from the Department of Trade and Industry and the Department of Labor and Employment, large-sized private establishments with total assets above P100 million located in special economic zones were enjoined to provide transportation for their employees.

Those riding the shuttle may sit one seat apart or maximize full seating capacity provided that there are dividers or barriers in place. Passengers are required to wear face masks and shields and disinfect frequently.

In compliance with the Data Privacy Act, information garnered for contact tracing will be as follows: "name and contact number of customers, clients, examinees, and visitors, as far as practicable."

Companies are encouraged to implement digital contact tracing via the StaySafe.ph app, which is the government's official digital contact tracing application and is integrated with the Department of Health's database.
