Face Masks to be Made Compulsory in Shops

Important Announcement

Face masks or coverings are to be made compulsory in shops from Friday 24th July. This will be for all members of the public unless you have a legitimate reason not to wear a mask/covering

This includes:

  • young children under the age of 11
  • not being able to put on, wear or remove a face covering because of a physical or mental illness or impairment, or disability
  • if putting on, wearing or removing a face covering will cause you severe distress
  • if you are travelling with or providing assistance to someone who relies on lip reading to communicate

If you feel that you or your client have a legitimate reason not to wear a mask you may find some of these exemption cards helpful. You can download the cards here and save to your phone or print and cut out.
