Britons are set to be told that they must wear face masks at work and on public transport

26 Apr 2020

 

Britons are set to be told that they must wear face masks at work and on public transport, according to reports.

 

Despite ministers previously stating there was no evidence to support that they helped stop the spread of Covid-19, it is understood fresh information has been shown to the government which could change their minds.

 

It is said research shows that face masks could help to stop ‘asymptomatic’ people – those who have the virus but are showing no symptoms – from passing it on.

 

New guidance is set to be released advising those that can’t keep more than 2 metres apart at work and on public transport to wear a cloth face mask, such as a homemade one, a scarf or another non-surgical mask.
