COVID-19 The compulsory wearing of face coverings in shops

Posted by: marcia - Posted on:

The introduction of the requirement for people to wear face covering in shops is intended to help prevent the spread of the COIVD-19 virus.

There are certain groups of people who are exempt from the requirement. Please click this link for further details.

There is no requirement for general practice to issue letters for patients who are unable to wear face coverings, as the Government have clearly defined the exemptions to this requirement.

Some transport providers are providing evidence of exemptions themselves; see for example this information from Arriva and Stagecoach.
