Face Coverings

Face Coverings/Masks

Members of staff and the public must now wear face coverings in enclosed public spaces.
  • libraries
  • public transport
  • airports, rail and tram stations, bus and coach stations, and ports
  • shops and supermarkets
  • indoor shopping centres
  • banks, building societies, and post offices (including credit unions, short-term loan providers, savings clubs and money service businesses)

We strongly encourage you to wear a face covering in other enclosed public spaces where social distancing may be difficult and where you come into contact with people you do not normally meet.

Face coverings are for adults, children over 11 and optional for children aged between 3 and 11. Please do not make your baby or child under the age of 3 wear a face covering as it is dangerous and could suffocate them.

Also, please be supportive as not everyone is able to wear a covering. You can download a face covering exemption card here.

Anyone who doesn’t abide by the regulations – and is not exempt under one of the categories set out in the regulations – could face a fine by the police of up to £200.
