Face Coverings

This page was last updated on 21 October 2021

face covering

Face covering are strongly recommended for the following:

• Where physical distancing is not possible

• Where there is poor ventilation

• Where there are close crowds, or where individuals need to work in very close proximity with colleagues, service users or customers

Some health care settings may be among those and will want to ask visitors to wear a face covering.  Please check with the health care provider before attending.

Businesses that feel it is appropriate for them to ask staff or customers to wear face coverings because of the type of setting in which they operate, can do so and customers are urged to respect these requests.
