Public Transport Update June 2020
- You now must wear a face covering on public transport. They are specifically not called face masks because the government does not want medical grade PPE (including face masks) diverted from the NHS. The government website says
- These face coverings should cover the mouth and nose while allowing the wearer to breathe comfortably and can be as simple as a scarf or bandana that ties behind the head to give a snug fit.
- See https://www.gov.uk/government/news/face-coverings-to-become-mandatory-on-public-transport
- If you have a bus pass, you now can’t use it till after 9:30am. The start time had been extended to allow older people to access the dedicated early shopping hour at supermarkets. But it’s back to normal now.
- Because of social distancing, buses can’t carry as many passengers.
