MCTS to require face coverings on buses beginning August 1

MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- The Milwaukee County Transit System announced Thursday, July 23, that all riders will be required to wear masks or face coverings on board buses beginning Saturday, August 1.

MCTS says they encourage the public to bring their own mask, but in cases where a passenger does not have one, they will provide free masks on buses (one per customer) while supplies last. 

Those exempt from the requirement include "children two years old or younger; anyone with a disability that makes it difficult to put on, wear, or remove a mask; anyone consistently interacting with a person who is hard of hearing and primarily relies on lip reading; anyone who has been advised by a medical professional not to wear a face mask because of personal health issues; anyone who has difficulty breathing or is incapacitated, and anyone whose religious beliefs prevent them from wearing a face mask."
