I used the Covid-19 Statement to highlight the importance of wearing face masks on public transport.
I have sadly seen a recent increase in people wearing their face masks incorrectly or not at all. We must all follow the rules to try and prevent rises in Covid-19 cases.
"Evidence seems to suggest that when it comes to face coverings on public transport, if everyone wears them, it reduces the spread, but if some people do not, it can increase the spread, as people fiddle around with their face masks and others are spraying out. I do not know whether the Secretary of State agrees, but it has been very worrying travelling on trains, seeing what appears to be a marked deterioration in the number of people wearing face masks. Will he send the message out that people really must do better? I know that masks can slip for everyone, but by and large, people really must follow the rules and ensure that they are not just protecting themselves, but everybody and essential public workers on our public transport system."
