Face masks are set to become a part of everyday life following the government announcement that face coverings are now mandatory on public transport and in hospitals.

The new rules, which came into force on 15 June, mean that anyone travelling by train, Tube, bus, ferry or plane in England should be wearing a face covering. Those travelling by train will be asked to cover their face as they enter a station.

People who aren’t wearing one can be refused on transport and fined £100. Those under the age of 11 and people with disabilities or breathing problems are exempt, as well as anyone travelling with someone who lip-reads.

The coronavirus pandemic has meant that face masks and coverings will become part of daily life.

The UK government and the World Health Organisation (WHO) have both advised wearing face coverings in a bid to reduce the infection transmission of Covid-19.

Since 15 June, it has been mandatory in England to wear them while using public transport and in hospitals. Failure to follow these rules can result in people being refused entry and a £100 fine.

The new rules mean that anyone travelling by train, Tube, bus, ferry or plane in England should be wearing a face covering. Those travelling by train will be asked to cover their face as they enter a station.

Upgrade Your Houseplants into Exciting Art Pieces with These 3D-Printed Planters

Classic terra-cotta planters certainly work just fine for housing your plants. But beautiful containers can double as art in your home, and there are so many eye-catching styles to choose from (I have a super cute owl planter that I love, even though I haven’t found the perfect plant for it yet). If you draw inspiration from contemporary style and sleek lines when you’re decorating your home, getting a few 3D-printed planters is a fun way to upgrade uninspiring containers. Etsy has dozens of shops selling these handmade pots for houseplants, featuring cool textures and bright colors. All of the planters are durable, watertight (with the exception of drainage holes), and lightweight (less than half a pound).
