Face coverings must be worn in shops from Friday 24 July 2020

23 July 2020

From Friday 24 July you must wear a face covering in shops and supermarkets.

You must also continue to wear face coverings when:

  • Using public transport, like buses or the Tube
  • Visiting a hospital, as an outpatient or visitor, and
  • In enclosed public spaces where social distancing is not possible.

You don’t need to wear your face covering outdoors, while exercising or in schools and offices.

Children under the age of 11 and people who may find it difficult to wear a face covering, because of a disability or breathing difficulty, do not need to wear one.
