After July 19, masks will remain required on London‘s public transportation system, according to the city’s mayor, despite Prime Minister Boris Johnson‘s government’s intentions to abolish most Covid-19 regulations on the so-called “freedom day.”
From next week, the public will be urged to wear masks in indoor confined areas across the nation, rather than being forced to by law, as regulations imposed by the Conservative administration be softened in England despite growing instances.
However, in the capital, TfL, which is led by Mayor Sadiq Khan (Labour Party), will continue to enforce face coverings on buses, trains, and other sections of the transport system to keep illnesses at bay.
While the government claims that Britain’s vaccine campaign has mostly severed the link between cases and serious disease or death, some scientists and public health experts are advising caution, fearing that daily infections may exceed 100,000.
Ridership on subway trains is around 40-45 percent of pre-pandemic levels, while bus ridership is approximately 60-65 percent.
