Boris Johnson urged to clarify message about wearing face masks in stores | News from the world


MPs urged the government to clarify its stance on face masks after Boris Johnson hinted that it could become mandatory to wear them in stores.Johnson said Friday that the ministers “were looking for ways to make sure people really did have a face covering, in stores, for example,” to slow the spread of the coronavirus.

These comments were welcomed by the shadow secretary of health, Jonathan Ashworth, who urged the government to quickly conclude its review of face masks “in order to provide the necessary solid and clear guidance.”

“It is welcome to the ministers who are once again examining the international evidence and best practices on masks,” he tweeted. “There is an emerging consensus on face masks that play an important role in places beyond public transportation and hospitals. People just want clarity from the government. “
