New rules come into place from 24th July on face masks when it will be mandatory to wear a face covering in shops and supermarkets in England.

In this guide find out which face coverings are needed for different purposes and the latest advice on how and when to order new stock.

 

Under the Public Health Act 1984 it is already mandatory to wear face coverings  on forms of public transport including buses, coaches, trams, ferries, aircraft and trains.

From Friday 24th July, anyone who goes into shops or supermarkets, including food takeaway shops, without a face covering could face a fine of up to £100.

 

As we’ve seen throughout the year, ordering the right kind of items at the right time has been essential to ensure everyone’s safety and compliance with the new regulations. So it’s important to know what kind of face covering is needed for what purpose.

 

Currently we do have stock, but there is high demand so do call us on 01726 74264 or email us at sales@cisafety.com so we can advise you on the right kind of face covering and order what you need in good time.

 

Face coverings are not the same as masks

A key point is that face coverings and face masks are not the same and there are many different varieties of face masks and coverings which suit different purposes. The government is keen to emphasise that:  “It is important that people do not use medical grade PPE masks to ensure these remain available for frontline staff.”

 

For retail staff and staff wishing to stop the general spread of COVID-19 

In these situations, a face covering does not have to be formally graded as PPE.

Protective face masks which are comfortable, reusable and which can be ordered in quantities are an ideal solution for many businesses. They work by preventing the wearer from spreading any infection, and use of these masks has been found to be effective in preventing the spread of coronavirus in public places.

 

We do have some excellent products, including this Protective Face Mask:

This mask has some of the key qualities that you need to look for in face masks which are needed to stop the general spread of coronavirus in shops and supermarkets and on public transport.

  • It is soft and comfortable, with an ergonomically designed fit so that it can be worn for longer periods of time.
