From 30 November 2021, there are some places where you must wear a face covering by law (unless you are exempt). This is to help stop the spread of COVID-19 and the new Omicron variant. The local police can enforce this new requirement.

Businesses must use signage to remind customers of the requirements to wear face coverings and should continue to follow government guidance to keep staff and customers safe.

If you want to report a health and safety concern or you are a business that needs advice on these new measures, contact the Food, Safety and Port Health Team.
