What protection is needed when settings organise transport for children?

If the children or young people being transported do not have symptoms of coronavirus (COVID-19), there is no need for a driver to use PPE. See COVID-19: safer transport guidance for operators for further guidance on PPE and face coverings.

The safer transport guidance says:

Face covering use by transport workers

The new mandatory requirement does not require staff to wear a face covering. However, face coverings offer some benefits in situations where social distancing is difficult to manage. For example, when working in passenger facing roles including when providing assistance to disabled passengers.
