Face Coverings Mandatory On Public Transport From June 15, Says Grant Shapps

Coronavirus has changed everything. Make sense of it all with the Waugh Zone, our evening politics briefing. Sign up now. Face coverings will be mandatory on public transport in England from June 15, transport secretary Grant Shapps has said. Travellers could be fined or refused permission to board buses or trains if they refuse to comply with the order.At the Downing Street press conference on Thursday, Shapps said: I can announce that as of Monday June 15 face coverings will become mandatory on public transport. That doesn t mean surgical masks, which we must keep for clinical settings. It means the kind of face covering, you can easily make at home. There will be exemptions to these rules for very young children, for disabled people and those with breathing difficulties. He said we need to ensure every precaution is taken on buses, trains, aircraft, and on ferries . With more people using transport the evidence suggests wearing face coverings offers some albeit limited protection against the spread for the virus.
