From June the 15th wearing a face covering will be compulsory on all public transport in England.

Mr Shapps said: “I can announce that as of Monday June 15 face coverings will become mandatory on public transport.

“That doesn’t mean surgical masks, which we must keep for clinical settings. It means the kind of face covering, you can easily make at home.”

“There will be exemptions to these rules for very young children, for disabled people and those with breathing difficulties.”

Many local company’s are currently selling face coverings.  Which include Fashion House in Poulton-Le-Fylde which is manufacturing bespoke coverings for members of the public and has had amazing feedback from hundreds of customers.
