The government has announced that wearing a face covering will be mandatory in hospitals and on public transport in England from 15 June. The rule applies only to England, where face coverings will be a condition of travel on buses, trains, ferries and airplanes.

Last month, the government published guidance saying that homemade cloth face coverings could help reduce the risk of transmission in some circumstances, and advising their use in certain situations where maintaining social distancing is more difficult.
