As of 15 June 2020, face coverings are compulsory in England on public transport and for hospital outpatients and visitors. Martin Evans, Practice Development Nurse for the Haematology Department, University Hospital of Wales, provides tips on using face masks, and comments on the use of disposable gloves. 

The compulsory rules do not apply in Scotland, Wales or Northern Ireland. However, the governments of these nations recommend that people cover their faces in places where social distancing is difficult; this includes on public transport.
