Face masks and coverings to be compulsory in England’s shops

Wearing a face covering in shops and supermarkets in England is to become mandatory from 24 July.

Those who fail to comply with the new rules will face a fine of up to £100, the government is to announce.

The move will bring England into line with Scotland and other major European nations like Spain, Italy and Germany.

Since mid-May, the public has been advised to wear coverings in enclosed public spaces, where they may encounter people they would not usually meet.

It has been compulsory on public transport in England since 15 June.

Children under 11 and those with certain disabilities will be exempt.

Environment Secretary George Eustice told BBC Breakfast the new mandatory rule for face coverings in shops does not apply to retail staff.

“It is about managing the overall risk,” he added. “Any type of covering will be sufficient for this purpose.”

It follows a reported increase in the use of face coverings by people in England, Scotland and Wales.

  2. Thanks for your writing. I would like to say a health insurance broker also works for the benefit of the actual coordinators of any group insurance policies. The health insurance broker is given a directory of benefits sought by an individual or a group coordinator. What any broker can is try to find individuals and also coordinators which best complement those requirements. Then he gifts his advice and if the two of you agree, the particular broker formulates a legal contract between the two parties.
