Retailers in Scotland urged to promote use of face masks

Retailers in Scotland are being urged to display a poster at their entrance requesting shoppers to wear face coverings.

First Minister Nicola Sturgeon has made the request following a decision to reopen most non-essential retail on Monday, June 29, with further restrictions eased from July 6.

The Scottish Government has provided template posters and printable stickers which can be downloaded, printed off and displayed on shop windows or doors. These are available here

Face coverings are already mandatory on public transport in Scotland.

Ms Sturgeon is expected next month to consider whether or not to make them mandatory in shops too once she receives the latest public health advice.
