The government is pushing for people to start using masks on public transport along with going into busy shops.
It’s not mandatory but it is recommended by government officials that people start to wear face masks when they’re on public transport and in shops.
The Government has issued guidelines on the use of face masks in Ireland.
According to the Irish Mirror, face masks should be worn ‘in situations where social distancing is not possible and when around those aged over 70.’ This includes public transport and shops.
The guidelines further specify that face masks should be worn by people who:
Are younger than 13
Suffer from breathing difficulties
Are unconscious or incapacitated, or are unable to remove it unaided
Have a disability
Might feel upset or uncomfortable wearing it
