Face coverings are to become compulsory for people using public transport in England from Monday 15 June.
Also, all hospital visitors and outpatients will have to wear face coverings and all staff will have to wear surgical masks at all times, in all areas.
Face coverings are already recommended in some enclosed spaces - like public transport and shops - when social distancing isn't possible.
What are the new rules?
The move to compulsory face coverings on buses, trains, ferries and planes, and the new rules for hospitals, will coincide with a further easing of lockdown restrictions.
From 15 June, ministers want more non-essential retailers to open and some secondary school pupils to return to classes. This could put more pressure on public transport, and make social distancing more difficult.
The government has stressed that people should:
- Continue working from home if they can do so
- Avoid public transport if they can't work from home
- Avoid the rush hour if they have to take public transport
Some passengers will be exempt from the new rules:
- Young children
- Disabled people
- Those with breathing difficulties
Transport Secretary Grant Shapps has said passengers should wear "the kind of face-covering you can easily make at home". Surgical masks should be kept for medical uses.
He told BBC News that while scientists aren't in full agreement about-face coverings, "we think it's worth doing absolutely everything possible" to reduce the spread of coronavirus.
