Face Coverings Mandatory

Update 24th September 2020: Face coverings are now mandatory for bar staff and non-seated customers, shop workers and waiters. Those who do not comply will face a £200 fine.

To see a full list of when and where to wear a face covering see the latest government guidelines here.

Whether you are working from your workplace, preparing to or still working from home, face coverings now play a big part in our lives.  Attitudes are also changing, and they are now becoming an acceptable and perfectly normal attire.

Why use a face covering?

Not to be confused with face masks (PPE) or Surgical/medical masks, face coverings are largely intended to protect others against the spread of infection, rather than the wearer.  Like many respiratory infections, the nose and mouth are the main confirmed sources of transmission of the virus that causes coronavirus infection (COVID-19). By covering them, we are helping to prevent the spread of the virus.  Simply by wearing a face mask it can also act as a deterrent to touching your face – studies have shown we touch our faces on average 16 times an hour!

Branded Face Coverings

Face coverings provide the perfect brand billboard to promote your company and raise your brand profile. By gifting your staff, clients and suppliers you work with a branded face covering with your corporate branding, message or styling, you will be showing your appreciation and support to those key people. It will align your marketing messaging with safety for your staff, clients and the general public.
