Face coverings are mandatory in enclosed public spaces
Full guidance on wearing face coverings in shops in England has now been released by the UK Government. Coverings will be mandatory in enclosed public spaces including shops, supermarkets, indoor shopping centres, transport hubs, banks and post offices.
They must also be worn when buying takeaway food and drink, although they can be removed in a seating area.
Those who break the rules could face a fine of up to £100, enforced by local authorities.
There are exemptions for children under 11, those with disabilities or certain health conditions, such as respiratory or cognitive impairments that make it difficult for them to wear a face covering. Public Health England has warned parents not to buy coverings for babies and young children because of the risk of choking or suffocation.
Masks will not be mandatory in our indoor venues which have other safety measures in place, including:
Hairdressers and salons
