Face coverings will shortly be compulsory on all SPSV services.
Wearing a face covering is already strongly recommended. Now it is to become mandatory.
As public health authorities have advised, face coverings can help prevent someone who may not even know they are infected from making other people sick, and the use of face coverings will help protect both passengers and drivers alike.
A detailed regulation on this is being prepared by government departments and NTA is involved with that process. That regulation will look at issues like enforcement and exemptions.
We will keep you updated.
