CORONAVIRUS: MASKS AND FACE COVERINGS TO BE MANDATORY FROM 24TH JULY IN ENGLAND'S SHOPS

July 16, 2020 1 min read

BBC: Wearing a face covering in shops and supermarkets in England is to become mandatory from 24 July.

Those who fail to comply with the new rules will face a fine of up to £100, the government has announced.

Health Secretary Matt Hancock said it would "give people more confidence to shop safely and enhance protections for those who work in shops".

Since mid-May, members of the public have been advised to wear coverings in enclosed public spaces, where they may encounter people they would not usually meet.

Mask-wearing has been compulsory on public transport in England and at NHS facilities across the UK since 15 June.

Technology commentators The Verge have reported a backward step, which sees a re-emergence of plastic bags being preferred to reusable shopping totes, despite no evidence that they can transmit the virus. The repeated and extensive national lockdowns have also lead to a boom in online shopping, as well as people selling their own items on marketplaces such as Ebay. This of course means a lot more plastic mail bags.

While it is important to take measures to protect ourselves from external threats, such as bacteria and viruses, in doing so we must not forget one of the main principles of bioethics taught to medical students across the World: "Primum non nocere" (First, do no harm).
