The mandatory requirement to wear face coverings on public transport in Scotland DOES include taxis

Scottish Government made the decision to introduce mandatory face coverings on all public transport, as is the case for transport passengers in England.

But it seems, unlike south of the border, Scotland have decided to make mandatory face coverings include modes of transport such as taxis and private hire vehicles.

Speaking in Scottish Parliament on 18 June, Nicola Sturgeon, said: "Face coverings can help to reduce the risk of transmission, and that's important. For that reason, we have decided that, Monday (22 June) face coverings will be mandatory on all public transport; that includes taxis and private hire cabs."

Sturgeon did add that drivers already protected by a shield "of some kind" will be exempt from the requirements.
