The wearing of face mask is now a must for all passengers travelling on all public buses, under new rules announced by the Land Transport Department.

Anyone not wearing a face mask will be denied boarding a bus while passengers are required to keep the mask on throughout the journey, said the department's director general Chirute Visalachitra today (March 26), adding that bus operators must strictly adhere to the rules.

They must prohibit anyone without a face mask from getting on board , but they could offer masks to them at reasonable price, Chirute said.

Anyone presenting a body temperature higher than 37.5 degree Celcius will also be banned from entering all public transportation systems.

The Department of Rail Transport has instructed all train and electric train operators to require passengers to wear masks.
