Holding answer received on 22 July 2020

As of Friday 24 July, members of the public must wear a face covering when visiting a shop or supermarket in England.

In addition, the Government is running a major proactive communications campaign on face coverings to alert the public where they are now required to wear face coverings and educate the public on how to correctly wear one.

The Government will keep the regulations under review and will continue assessing if measures need to be put in place for other settings going forward.
