South Western Railway has published a statement about wearing mandatory face coverings on its services from Monday 15 June 2020. If you are going to be using public transport to commute to campus please take note of the below:
From Monday 15 June, face coverings must be worn at our stations and when travelling on our trains. Passengers with a disability or respiratory problems are exempt, and so are very young children.
Face coverings can help to prevent the transmission of coronavirus - especially when social distancing is not possible.
They can be a natural fabric that covers the nose and mouth, and can be easily bought online or made at home. Face coverings should not be confused with medical face masks or respirators.
We encourage all customers who need to travel with us to watch our animated video below. This provides advice on how to safely use our services and the new measures we have introduced to help, such as one-way systems and floor vinyls marking out the 2m distance. These measures come on top of our new hand sanitiser machines, which have been rolled out at around 100 stations.
