Face mask policy: Tesco, Asda, Marks & Spencer and Aldi could change shopping rules


A statement said: “The committee recognises that there are practical reasons for this difference in requirement to wear a face covering, (uncomfortable to wear for long periods on duty for example), but suggests it can reasonably be anticipated that difficulties may arise where staff in shops, who are not wearing face coverings, ask a member of the public to put one on.”

The report acknowledged the possible risk to staff enforcing face mask rules.

It said that face mask policies should be regularly reviewed in light of how it is received.

The statement continued: “The committee concludes that ‘given the potential challenges… the government should keep the implementation and effectiveness of this policy and any sensitivities arising from it under close scrutiny’.”
