Copia-di-Copia-di-Copia-di-Copia-di-Copia-di-Copia-di-Copia-di-Copia-di-REDDITO-MINIMO-1Lax attitudes towards COVID-19 guidelines are hampering the authorities’ efforts to maintain social distancing and use of masks on public transport.

The issues range from passengers’ failure to wear masks – or contaminating them by failing to wear them properly – to packed buses and bus stops with little to no social distancing being enforced.

Readers using public transport on high-density routes reported the highest amount of infractions,.

Responding to questions on the subject, Transport Malta stated that it is “closely monitoring the situation as it is developing and taking actions deemed necessary to mitigate the spread of COVID-19”.

The health authorities’ guidelines require passengers to wear masks at bus stops and termini and when travelling on the bus. Social distancing is also called for in these situations.

Bus drivers are not required to wear masks, if they are separated from customers by a perspex screen.

On board, standing zones must be marked and passenger capacity limited.
