The passengers in the bus terminal checked by thermal cameras and digital thermometers. Authorities announced frequently that to be careful about social distance rules and wearing masks.

All preventive health measures necessary for air travel are in place, Turkey's transport and infrastructure minister said on Monday as the country resumed domestic flights in line with the normalization plan amid a decline in coronavirus numbers.
