Face Coverings

On Public Transport

In line with Government rules, face coverings must be worn for the full duration of journeys on the public transport network. Your face covering must cover both your mouth and nose. Customers using taxis and private hire vehicles should also use a face covering for the duration of all journeys. Face coverings can be a simple cloth that covers the nose and mouth. 

A small number of customers are not required by law to wear face coverings. For more information, please follow the link below:

When using NHS services

All patients and visitors to NHS services must wear a face covering at all times. This includes hospitals, community clinics and GP services. Current evidence is face coverings can help reduce the risk of transmission if you are suffering from coronavirus, but not showing symptoms

The government has set out advice for people on how to make their own face coverings easily at home, using scarves or other textile items. These face coverings should cover the mouth and nose, whilst allowing the wearer to breathe comfortably and can be as simple as a scarf or bandanna that ties behind the head to give a snug fit

Please wash your hands or use hand sanitiser before putting on a face covering and after taking it off. Please avoid touching your face covering whilst wearing it to avoid transmission of the virus
