Overview: The French government allowed cab drivers to deny service to people displaying the symptoms of COVID-19.

People riding in a cab may not sit next to the driver or next to other passengers, and that any passengers riding in a taxi must take all of their waste with them when they get out of the car.

Taxi cabs must always be ventilated and the driver must regularly disinfect the inside of the cab.

These provisions also apply to those who are employed to drive transport vehicles for the disabled.
