    It has been announced:

    ‘Wearing face coverings will be compulsory on public transport in England from 15 June, the transport secretary has said.

    Grant Shapps said "every precaution" must be taken as passenger numbers are expected to increase when lockdown measures are further eased.

    People will be have to wear coverings on buses, trains, aircraft and ferries.

    Very young children, disabled people and those with breathing difficulties will be exempt, he said.

    It comes as the UK recorded the deaths of another 176 people who tested positive for coronavirus, taking the total number of deaths in the UK to 39,904.’

    What is your choice? I was thinking of this as a face covering:

    I have already bought some nice material masks & some disposable ones as I’ve said on the other thread. But, if we’re going for zany on this thread. Then I might go for the low calorie mask that doubles up as lunch.

    Many don’t have that option though to be fair.

    I do...

    So are you saying "to be fair" I should go on public transport?

    Access to a personalised oxygen supply seems a good idea.

    But this one lets the wearer travel unhindered the length and breadth of the country, plus it comes with a free sight test built in... 09576D1D-7DCE-4C50-B9B3-FBE832828871.jpeg

    Lan. Chill. It’s a bit of fun thread. Where’s that Pratchett loving, sci-fi expert, super-fun-nerd we know & love :).

    And, no, I’m not saying you should have to use public transport at all.
