New guidance on face coveringsPublished Tuesday, 14 July 2020
The guidance on face coverings in England is changing. From 24 July, it will be mandatory to wear a face covering in shops and supermarkets, as well as on public transport.
Your face covering must cover your nose and mouth at all times.
The Government has put together some clear instructions on how you can make your own face covering.
But please remember, this is not a replacement for social distancing and regular handwashing. It's important to keep your distance from others when you are outside of your home, use hand sanitiser when you are out and wash your hands for 20 seconds when you get back.
