London Will Still Require Masks on Public Transit, Mayor Says

Mayor Sadiq Khan of London said face masks would continue to be mandatory on the city’s subways and buses after July 19, when England plans to lift most coronavirus restrictions.

I think after Monday, we should continue making it compulsory to wear a face mask on public transport, where often you can’t keep your social distance. It adds an additional layer of protection, but also reassurance. The evidence we know from the government’s own scientific advisers, the evidence from the World Health Organization, is you wearing a face mask, makes it less likely that the virus can be passed on. It reduces transmission in an indoor space where you can’t keep your distance. But also the Centers for Disease Control in the U.S.A. have now said actually, on top of it being the most unselfish thing you can do, wearing a face mask may reduce the chances of you catching the virus. So for me, it’s really important that we make sure public transport continues to be both safe, but also reassuring.
