As face coverings become compulsory in shops across England from tomorrow (Friday July 24), Cambridgeshire Police have issued advice about how to ‘protect your fellow shoppers’.

“Remember to have your face coverings ready,” reads a post on the Facebook page Policing East Cambridgeshire.

“We can all do our bit to protect each other from the virus and help to keep our communities safe.

“Thank you to the vast majority of people who have acted responsibly and followed the Government advice in recent months.”

“Face coverings must be warn unless you have a reason not to wear one. Don’t leave home without yours.”
