Eurostar says all its passengers must wear face masks as a safeguard against coronavirus, effective Monday, AP reports.

In a tweet in French and in English, the international high-speed train service says the policy will apply to both its trains and its stations, “in line with guidelines announced by the French and Belgian governments.”
