Face coverings at Alert Level 1&2
At Alert Level 1 and 2, there is a risk of COVID-19 returning to the community.
Public transport and domestic flights
You legally must wear a face covering on public transport and domestic flights at Alert Level 1. This includes trains, buses and most ferries.
Drivers and transport operators will not stop people without face coverings from boarding public transport. This is because some people will have legitimate reasons for not wearing a face covering.
However, where possible, drivers will be encouraging passengers to wear a face covering.
