Retail Guidance on Face Masks

From 24th July the Government have made it mandatory for all shoppers to wear a face mask.  Those who fail to comply with the new rules will face a fine of up to £100.

The ruling was made to give people more confidence to shop safely and enhance protections for those who work in shops.

At EHAAT we have made the following decision regarding all our retail shops –

  • All supporters must wear a face mask…“No mask no shopping”
  • Any supporter who does not have a mask will have the option to buy a disposable mask for £1, or a reusable EHAAT branded one for £6
  • All our staff that are in the shop will wear a mask or a visor

We appreciate that some of the guidance states that there are exemptions therefore

Should you be unable to wear a mask for medical reasons, we kindly ask you to wait until any supporters leave and then you will be invited in to shop. Whilst you are in the shop no other supporters will be allowed to enter.

We thank you for your ongoing support,
