Face masks to be compulsory on NI public transport

A proposal to make face coverings mandatory on public transport in Northern Ireland is expected to be signed off later by Stormont ministers.

Nichola Mallon – Infrastructure Minister had initially suggested the move take effect from Friday, 3 July.

But the measure comes into force in the Republic of Ireland today and has been in place in England and Scotland for weeks.

It is understood the executive could now change its proposed date.

This would ensure the same rules are in place for cross-border train and bus travel.

At present, the executive strongly recommends they are worn in shops and on public transport, or if visiting people indoors, where it can be more difficult to maintain social distancing.
