Guidance when travelling
Text © Gov.uk
Our guidance is set out in Safe working in education, childcare and children’s social care settings, including the use of personal protective equipment (PPE). 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. We appreciate organisations might put in place their own local policies.
For ease of reference:
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.
