Jul 19, 2020
Regulations to enforce the compulsory wearing of face coverings on public transport will come into effect from Monday, Taoiseach Micheál Martin has said.
Mr Martin said the Government will encourage people to wear face coverings in crowded indoor gatherings and where social distancing is not possible.
People who do not comply with the new laws that make face coverings mandatory on public transport could face fines of up to €2,500 and/or six months in prison.
