Face coverings mandatory in wider range of settings from 8 AugustFace coverings mandatory in wider range of settings from 8 August

Face coverings are mandatory using public transport, and in enclosed public spaces in England, including shops, supermarkets, shopping centres, transport hubs and take-aways.

This is being extended to other indoor settings from 8 August, where people are likely to come into contact with people they do not usually meet: such as museums, galleries, cinemas and places of worship. Voluntary wear before 8 August is recommended.

There are a range of exemptions, for example, where people have disabilities or certain health conditions, such as respiratory or cognitive impairments, that make it difficult for them to wear a face covering. There are optional downloadable exemption cards or badges in the guidance.

Guidance, Face coverings: when to wear one and how to make your own, updated 31 July 2020.

The police have powers to enforce these measures and fine people, but have said they will explain and persuade in the first instance.
