Following the Prime Minister’s statement in the House of Commons earlier today, we can confirm that the Government intends to make the wearing of face coverings mandatory for colleagues in store from this Thursday (24th September). For Dee Bee face covering range please click here
The Government has yet to publish detail on any exemptions from this rule, although we anticipate that colleagues who would be otherwise exempt for medical reasons would also be exempt while working. As soon as further details are announced, we will provide an additional update.
The Government has also announced that the Covid secure workplace guidelines are to become law, and will be subject to sanctions if they are not followed.
The Covid secure guidelines for shops and branches are available here: https://www.gov.uk/guidance/working-safely-during-coronavirus-covid-19/shops-and-branches
