Supermarkets have regularly updated customers throughout the pandemic on various different safety rules and measures. As lockdown restrictions ease further in the UK, Tesco has updated shoppers with new guidance, including the continuation of its priority shopping hours.
Tesco said: “Although the legal requirement to wear a face covering in England ends on July 19, the Government expects and recommends that people continue to wear a face covering in crowded and enclosed spaces.
“So we’re encouraging our colleagues and you, or customers, to continue wearing face coverings if you can.
“For our customers and colleagues in Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland, face coverings remain mandatory unless exempt, as set out in Government guidance.”
Shoppers can also continue to use the sanitising stations at the store entrances.
Sainsbury’s said: “Where Government restrictions apply, we will offer elderly and vulnerable customers and NHS and care workers with an NHS ID priority access to our stores.
“This means you can skip the queue at any time so that we can welcome you into our stores quickly and safely.”
