We now hear Tesco joining Sainsbury’s in announcing that they will continue to require buyers to wear masks, even after the legal requirement to do so in England was dropped on Monday.
Tesco said he wanted to “be on the safe side”.
But what are other industries planning to do?
We already know that several airlines will continue to require passengers to wear masks on board and, as confirmed on Wednesday, masks will be mandatory on the London Underground and other Transport for London services.
Timpsons, the shoe repair and key cutting chain and jewelry retailer Beaverbrooks said that if plastic screens and other security measures remain in place and staff continue to wear face coverings, customers will be left to fend for themselves.
And it looks like the beauty industry wants to stick with face coverings for the staff.
Beauty industry trade body leader Babtac, Lesley Blair, told the BBC that while it may no longer be the law, the group would certainly “encourage” its members to continue wearing masks at this time, especially when working near clients. .
