The last two days I've been on a few buses, and it occurs to me that First must have told their drivers not to bother enforcing the use of masks, or to ensure widows are all open. Just imagine how well enforcement will work in pubs if this is anything to go by! ...

Saw this and though not our region, it seems appropriate to share.

m.facebook.com/story.php?story_fbid=2982812698470194&id=205684076183084We’ve had lots of questions about exemptions to the mandatory wearing of face masks on buses in England from Monday. The Government has provided more details, which we are publishing here.

1. Breathing difficulties and other respiratory conditions
2. Conditions effecting dexterity, meaning someone is not able to put on a face covering
3. Mental health conditions such as anxiety or panic disorders
4. Other non-visible disabilities such as autism
5. Cognitive impairments, including dementia, which means someone may not understand or remember the need to wear a face covering
6. Visual impairments, with a restricted field of vision, particularly if any residual vision is at the lower edge of the normal field of view
7. Impairments which would make it difficult to put on or take off a face covering safely, accurately, consistently or without pain
8. Children under 11, or children on dedicated school transport services
9. Those who rely on lip reading, including carers who are travelling with someone for whom a face covering will inhibit communication

The above list of exemptions is not exhaustive and would extend to someone who has a justifiable reason for not wearing one on the grounds of health or disability not outlined above.
