The urgency behind the mask

 

Sir, – I note that the wearing of face masks on public transport is still not mandatory “two weeks after the Government announced the measure” (News, July 10th).

Regulations “are being prepared and are an advanced stage”, the Department of Health tells us.

Not a great deal of urgency there, I am afraid! – Yours, etc
