UK Supermarkets Denying Entry to Mask-less Shoppers

Wednesday, January 13th, 2021

Tesco, Asda and Waitrose will not let shoppers into their stores if they are not wearing a face covering, the UK supermarket groups say, joining rivals Sainsbury’s and Morrisons which made the policy change a day earlier.

With COVID-19 infection numbers rising sharply, the UK government has expressed concern about the spread of the virus in supermarkets, with some people breaching rules by not wearing masks while shopping.

Non-essential retail, restaurants and bars are shut across the UK, leading to a high level of demand for supermarkets and other food stores.

“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,” market leader Tesco said in a statement.
