With an expected announcement from the UK Government on Sunday 10 May to relax some of the current "lockdown" restrictions in the current Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, which could lead to an increased number of passengers travelling on Go North East's bus services, further re-allocations and service allocation revisions are being made, in order to increase social distancing on-board Go North East's bus services. This will include double-deck buses being allocated to services ordinarily allocated single-decks, and single-deck buses being allocated to those services which had been temporarily allocated minibuses for the duration of the crisis. Therefore this vehicle has transferred from Riverside Depot to Hexham.

Following the end of the Great Exhibition event; this vehicle has been repainted into a plain white base livery, prior to receiving a further promotional livery for Anna Woodford, a poet and practitioner based in Newcastle, who Go North East worked with during the Great Exhibition of the North event. While being repainted, the front white LED display unit was also removed and exchanged for a standard amber display. This is to allow the company to have a spare example of this type of display, should any other examples of this type fail or be damaged requiring replacement.
