Short Update: Face coverings compulsory on public transport in England

FT Admin - June 15, 2020 - COVID-19 Updates, New criminal offences

From today, Monday 15 June, it is compulsory for individuals using public transport in England to wear a face covering. Over 3,000 additional staff including police officers are to be posted at stations to ensure compliance with the rule. Passengers without a covering will be asked to wear one or will be refused entry on board public transport or fined £100. Free coverings are being handed out at railway stations over the next several days and government guidance sets out that face coverings can be homemade. Individuals falling into certain categories, for example children under the age of 11 and individuals with particular health conditions, will be exempt from the rule.
