The government outlined new coronavirus rules on Sunday, with Boris making a statement live on Sunday a COVID-19 plan outline.

The government then released a 50-page document outlining the rules in detail.

One such rule includes wearing face covering in enclosed spaces.

This includes the supermarket.

The document said: “If you can, wear a face covering in an enclosed space where social distancing isn’t possible and where you will come into contact with people you do not normally meet.

“This is most relevant for short periods indoors in crowded areas, for example on public transport or in some shops.”

While no supermarkets have made masks mandatory, it seems members of the public will be encouraged to wear them.

Currently Aldi has facemask rules in place.

The company confirmed that it will be putting a new face mask policy in place to keep its key workers safe as they serve at the tills and restock shelves.

A statement from Aldi said: “Aldi will be providing the option of face masks to all its store-based colleagues to further support their safety as they continue to feed the nation.

“This move is in addition to the previously announced provision of gloves and clear screens that are being installed at more than 7,000 checkouts.

“Colleagues can also now access the Government’s Covid-19 testing programme for critical workers.”
