Face masks & other PPE

Wearing a face covering is mandatory on public transport and is required for close contact work (1-2m for Alert Level 3 and less than 1m for Alert Level 2). Plumbing World have PPE stocks and recommend ordering through pwGO, as it means virtually no physical contact and will help minimise any delays when collecting orders or having them delivered.
