Commenting on the government’s announcement that wearing a face covering will be mandatory in shops and supermarkets in England from 24 July
BCC Co-Executive Director Claire Walker said:
“Businesses need clarity on the approach to the wearing of face coverings that is consistent and supported by public health evidence. Shops and other indoor businesses need to know what the new rules are as soon as possible.
“Updated guidance, including on enforcement, should be issued swiftly so firms can maintain their Covid-secure status and continue their operations successfully.”
