Face Coverings

For information on when, what and how to wear a face covering please visit the government page, here. This page explains:

  • what face coverings are
  • how face coverings can reduce the transmission of coronavirus (COVID-19)
  • the settings in which they need to be worn
  • how face coverings should be safely used and stored

This information is based on current scientific evidence and is subject to change.

This information relates to the use of face coverings in public spaces where social distancing is not always possible. It is important to follow all the other government advice on coronavirus (COVID-19), including staying safe outside your home.
