Face coverings are a shopping essential

A reminder that face coverings will be required in all shops (including supermarkets) from Friday 24 July. This is in addition to public transport, where you are already required to wear a face covering.

People are also strongly encouraged to wear face coverings in other enclosed public spaces or where social distancing may be more difficult. Wearing a face covering will help us all to protect each other and contain the spread of the virus as more premises are reopening.

Both the Government and the BBC have put together simple guides on how to make your own face covering using material you have at home, such as a scarf, bandana or old t-shirt.
