All the kids went back to school on Tuesday this week.
But drivers and kids where told no mask required especially in the Borders.
Even the buses no mask required.
This is strange, as its still mandatory for drivers and passengers to wear one, unless they are exempt
company's who do the contracts are putting drivers at risk all because SBC said so

Are you saying that drivers on contract are not allowed to wear a mask? Surely they can wear a mask if they want to. Or are the borders so bizarre that you can be fined for wearing a mask?

I know there are lots of sheep up there, but don’t drivers have the capability to make a decision all by themselves?

Having said all that, my personal opinion is that face masks are as much use as a chocolate fire guard.

I have just been reading the guidance from our County Council for when the schools go back and they are saying that no masks are required by drivers or passengers and that vehicles can be used to their full capacity.

Drivers must wear masks down here for school contracts.

We drivers ARE required to wear a face covering on our Borders School runs.
