Face coverings mandatory in shops
From today (24 July), members of the public in England will need to wear face coverings – for example, a fabric covering, scarf or bandana – that covers the nose and mouth - in various shops, stores and cafes.
The responsibility for wearing a face covering sits with individuals. Businesses are being encouraged by the Government to take reasonable steps to encourage customers to follow the law, including through signs and providing other information in store. Enforcement is undertaken by the police.
For transport hubs in England, the requirements mean face coverings must be worn in indoor train stations and terminals, airports, maritime ports, and indoor bus and coach stations or terminals.
