Sainsbury’s is to encourage customers continue to wear face masks in its stores after they stop being legally required on Monday.

The supermarket said it will also keep Perspex screens between customers and staff at checkouts, hand sanitiser stations in stores and maintain thorough hygiene procedures, including deep cleaning overnight.

Simon Roberts, chief executive, said the decision follows feedback from staff and customers, with the majority responding that they wanted face coverings to remain in place.

I Call True: A sensible precaution for us all to take for a while to manage the flare up, Tesco's are now saying the same. As long as it isn't going to be the new normal for the long term then I'm all for this

The trouble is, the virus is not ever going away, so I would suggest that if we allow it, then mask wearing is here to stay. Which is bonkers as there is no evidence that they actually protect anyone from an airborne virus in the first place!

Literally been thrown into the hands of businesses to manage as the government is washing its hands on enforcing it https://bit.ly/3iaE1V7
