From tomorrow, Friday 24 July, it is compulsory to wear face coverings in shops inĀ #Essex.

This is for your safety as well as the safety of others.

Please continue to help protect the NHS, and everyone, by wearing a face covering when shopping.

We will continue to encourage people to follow government guidance and that includes the new step of wearing face coverings in shops.

Thank you to all of you for all you have done and continue to do to keep Essex safe.
