Not with holes in so you can hear people talk.

A screen with some holes in will provide a great deal of protection.
Obviously not perfect, for that you need to wear a space suit.


The holes have now been covered anyway.


as you no longer walk past them

this issue is moot


Not quite. There may still be passengers standing near the front, not far
from the screen, unless they've closed off the whole front area.


they have

What have they done, exactly? I've not been on a bus for over a
month.

from the screen, unless they've closed off the whole front area.

They started off by putting a "rope" across just the front 2 rows of seats
"opposite" the driver but left the aisles, and the seat
behind the driver, if there was one open (plus the aisle obviously)

now that rope cuts off the front two rows on both sides and the aisle to the
front door.

On a single decket that leaves only about 16 seats

I was on a bus with 6 people yesterday morning. It was impossible for us
not to sit close to each other

Oh, that's more than I expected. I wonder if that's not overkill, now
they've sealed the holes in the driver's shield?

Yes, I can imagine.

Probably another great idea by the veritable genius Mr Khan in city hall.
I'm surprised he hasn't closed off half the pavements then complaining about
the people walking on the small remaining space left not social distancing as
they walk past each other.
