Face masks will be mandatory on all public transport within the UK as of June 15th the transport minister has said.

Two schoolboys in China reportedly collapsed and suddenly died within a week of each other after they were forced to participate in gym class while sporting face masks.
The students, both 14 years old, were running laps as part of their schools’ required physical examination tests when they both unexpectedly dropped dead…
A Chinese man is recovering from surgery after his lung collapsed following a 2.5-mile run in Wuhan, the initial epicenter of the coronavirus pandemic, while wearing a face mask last week, hospital officials said Monday.

Oh, and remember Face masks are also being recommended if you intend to have a little fun between the sheets:
