P-05-998 Wearing of face masks/coverings to be mandatory in shops


This petition was submitted by Matthew Engstrom having collected a total of 5,516 signatures.


Text of Petition:                      

I currently work in retail and despite a very comprehensive effort from my employer the safety measures in place are not enough if a customer decides to ignore the rules. Making it mandatory for the use of face coverings inside shops would be a fair and effective way of further protecting staff and customers.


Additional Information

Wearing of face coverings in shops will help prevent the transmission of Covid 19 and alongside social distancing and hygiene efforts will further protect staff and customers.
