Merseyrail - IMPORTANT UPDATE - Face Coverings

As of Monday 23rd November Merseyrail stations will not be giving out free face masks.
Please communicate with children and their parents the importance of wearing face coverings whilst using public transport. This can be a scarf or other covering that covers the nose and mouth and catches any droplets.
 
Face coverings are exempt to those children with medical conditions that would stop them wearing one, they can download an exemption card from the Merseyrail website https://www.merseyrail.org/media/1418676/face-covering-exemption-card.pdf
 
Our staff will engage and encourage children to wear face coverings and will not enforce this or stop them from travelling, however the British Transport Police are widely patrolling the Merseyrail network and issuing fines up to £6,400 
 
If a child encounters a problem at the station in relation to wearing a mask, please ask them to speak to a member of staff in the first instance who will assist them.
