Please wear a face covering

Please wear a face covering on public transport, including flights.

Wearing a face covering helps keep you and others safe. It helps stop droplets spreading when someone speaks, laughs, coughs or sneezes.

Wear a face covering

Practise good hygiene

These simple steps can slow the spread of the virus — protecting yourself and others.

Ways to protect yourself and others from COVID-19

Wash your hands

Washing your hands is one of the easiest ways to keep yourself and others safe. Wash often. Use soap. 20 seconds. Then dry. This kills the virus by bursting its protective bubble.

Cough or sneeze into your elbow

Coughing or sneezing into your elbow keeps the virus off your hands so you will not spread it to other people and make them sick too.

Clean surfaces

Regularly clean surfaces that get touched frequently.
