So I read that Translink is making it mandatory for everyone to wear masks on the buses and skytrain come August 24th. Finally! Why did it take Translink so damn long to take this issue seriously? We are in still in the middle of a serious pandemic and the virus is not going away anytime soon. I’m glad action is being taken because I for one am fed up of disgusting, careless people standing so close to me, breathing down my neck . Either put your mask on or do not take transit at all.
