    If you really have to travel by train: please try to travel off-peak, keep a 2-metre distance from others, use a face covering, and carry hand sanitiser or wash your hands.

    For the latest Coronavirus guidance from the NHS, please visit nhs.uk/coronavirus.

    Answers to the common questions that you are asking about train services, and details on refunds, can be found on our dedicated Coronavirus page.

    Description

    CrossCountry, along with the rest of the rail industry, are working to support efforts to minimise the spread of coronavirus and to keep services running for essential travel.

    The government are asking people to avoid public transport if at all possible, to help maintain social distancing and keep the railway for those who need it most.
