Tesco wants to make clear that rules are still in place and wearing a face mask is required unless you are exempt.
Since the beginning of the pandemic, ensuring a safe environment in the stores for people to buy their groceries has been the UK retailer’s number one goal.
They are committed to protecting their customers but also their employees.
Tesco keeps encouraging people to shop alone to avoid the spread of the virus.
Since July 2020, the government has required everyone in England to wear a face mask in supermarkets.
However, it wasn’t until the beginning of 2021 when some supermarkets like Morrisons or Sainsbury’s started to ban shoppers without a mask.
Retailers have been criticised in the past for not doing enough to stop people from breaking Covid rules as infections spread.
With this reminder, Tesco is making sure that customers won’t relax as lockdown restrictions ease.
In this latest statement, they are making clear that their priority is to keep protecting their shoppers and workers.
“To protect our customers and colleagues, we won’t let anyone into our stores who is not wearing a face covering, unless they are exempt in line with Government guidance.”
“We are also asking our customers to shop alone, unless they’re a carer or with children,” the spokesperson added.
“To support our colleagues, we will have additional security in stores to help manage this.”
