Face Coverings

Alert message sent 21/07/2020 14:02:00

Information sent on behalf of Staffordshire Police

From the 24th of July people in England are required to wear face coverings when visiting shops. People who don't do this COULD be fined.
It doesn't have to be a medical mask a fabric mask or scarf will be fine, there are some people who are exempt from the rules these include Children under 11, people with disabilities, people with breathing difficulties, and anyone traveling/shopping with someone who relies on lip reading.
If you are exempt remember when you are going to a shop or supermarket and you see the employee standing at the door, whose job it is to challenge people who are not wearing a mask, or if your asked by a staff member, remember they are probably scared to even be in that position. You may be asked several times in a large store as to why your not wearing a mask, these people are just trying to keep everyone safe.
If you are shopping in a store and see a person without a mask remember they could be exempt, don't assume they are breaking the rules, speak to a member of staff they will know who to contact.
Treat everyone with respect wear a mask in all shops even if your just popping into the local store.
Don't make assumptions and maintain social distancing.
