Tesco and Asda ban shoppers without face masks after Sainsbury's & Morrisons clampdown
Tesco said those who shop without a mask from Tuesday, January 12, will be banned at entrances, as the country grapples with the ongoing spread of the new covid strain
Tesco said it will be enforcing new rules on face masks and lone shopping from Tuesday, as the country grapples with the ongoing spread of Covid-19.
A spokesman told The Mirror customers will be banned unless they are medically exempt.
"We won’t let anyone into stores not wearing a face covering, unless they are exempt.
"We are also asking customers to shop alone, unless they’re a carer or with children... we will have additional security to help manage this."
Asda announced similar measures today, after rivals Morrisons and Sainsbury's introduced new bans earlier this week.
Asda said those who refuse to wear a face covering without a valid medical reason will be refused entry.
