    Following the footsteps of other European nations, England has advised that beginning 24 July, wearing face masks will be mandatory when entering shops and supermarkets.

    This follows the mandatory rule on public transport, in order to further managing the overall risk. This new rule also follows an increase of face mask usage in England, Scotland, and Wales.

    As per Environment Secretary George Eustice via BBC Breakfast:


    It is also noted that this rule will be police enforced, and anyone who does not comply will get a fine of up to £100, and will be reduced to £50 if paid within 14 days.

    Also, to avoid total involvement of shop workers and not make further issues, they will not be expected to tightly enforce the rules to their customers, and instead will just be encouraged to inform customers to comply. Let us just hope that this will not be an issue among citizens and become a nationwide trend to "fighting the system".

    Children under 11 and those with certain disabilities will be exempt from this rule - although personally, I would rather keep the kids at home than trying to take them outside to be on the safe side.
