Masks appear on Beatles and Cilla Black statues in Liverpool

With COVID-19 on the rise again in England, Liverpool's real service is encouraging people to help stop the spread by placing masks on notable statues around town, including those honoring the Beatles and their pal, singer Cilla Black.

As face coverings are now mandatory on public transport, Merseyrail has gone one step further to reinforce the message to customers by covering up five of its trains. A large yellow face covering has been added to the outside of five of the rail operator’s trains alongside the message “Have you got it covered?” and is now visible traveling around the network.
