  1. I don’t see shops explicitly listed here other than under ‘distribution facilities’. Are masks obligatory in shops in England as they are in Scotland?


    1. Yes they are, although I doubt many are aware of the new changes that came in on the 8th. Interesting the government see pubs and gyms as much safer than any of the above listed!


      1. Because there is no enforcement people will continue to flout regulations. A customer at Best One in Central Avenue regularly tells customers that they don’t need to wear a mask and staff do nothing about it.
