Residents in London will continue wearing face masks in public transportation regardless of restrictions lifting on July 19, media agencies reported on Wednesday.
London’s Mayor Sadiq Khan asserted that he won’t let any of the public transport network users be at risk, so face coverings will be worn mandatory on public transportation.
He added: “We know from the government’s own advisors and from the World Health Organisation, that wearing a face-covering indoors does reduce transmissions. It leads to greater public safety and greater public confidence as well.”
In the same context, authorities advised passengers to use face coverings only on crowded services, that’s why London became the first city to continue imposing such a role.
