If you are using the bus from Monday, please remember that a face covering should be worn unless you have any of the following.....

2 - Conditions effecting their dexterity, meaning they are 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, who 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.

DfT expect everyone to wear a face covering if they can. 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.
