Mandatory Face Coverings on Public Transport in England

The wearing of face coverings will be compulsory on public transport in England from June 15th. The announcement was made by the UK Transport Secretary, Grant Shapps, who said "every precaution" must be taken as passenger numbers increase as lockdown measures are eased.

Last month, SecuriGroup issued over 5,000 re-usable face coverings to all frontline officers throughout the UK and Ireland. 

Director of Business Operations, Susanne Parker, said: "the safety of our colleagues is our number one priority. We distributed the face coverings with guidance on their use to help safeguard our people when social distancing measures are difficult to observe."
