Health Minister urges people to wear masks on public transport

The health Minister says he’s concerned people aren’t wearing masks on public transport.

Mandatory mask wearing on buses and trains was removed at the end of February, but wearing a face covering is still advised.

Last week, Stephen Donnelly said compulsory mask wearing could be reintroduced, if a Covid variant of concern emerges during the winter.

Minister Donnelly says he’s planning a new campaign to encourage more commuters to wear masks again:

“That is something that is a concern for me. One of the things we’re doing is putting a new communications campaign together for example what I would like to see for all of us when we get on a bus or we get on we get on a train is very clear signage on the buses on the train saying you know, if you’re reading this sign you should be wearing a mask.”
