Waitrose, John Lewis, Tesco and Aldi ask customers to keep wearing masks after July 19

Waitrose, John Lewis, Tesco and Aldi have become the latest retailers to say they will encourage customers and shop workers to continue wearing masks after July 19.

On Wednesday evening, supermarket chain Sainsbury’s said it would encourage all customers to wear a face covering after “Freedom Day”.

It comes after the Government published guidance for businesses which said it “expects and recommends” masks to be worn by workers and customers in crowded, enclosed spaces.

Staff and customers at Waitrose and John Lewis have also been urged to continue wearing masks but bosses say it will ultimately be up to individual judgment. Perspex screens and hand sanitising stations will remain in place throughout stores. 

Meanwhile, Tesco has said social distancing, alongside other measures, will remain place across its shops.

Last week, the supermarket started an internal review regarding its mask-wearing policies ahead of the latest easing of restrictions.

The firm said it would continue to have capacity limits in its stores, protective screens at checkouts, hand sanitiser stations and regular cleaning.

A Tesco spokesman said: “Since the start of the pandemic, we have focused on ensuring everyone can get the food they need in a safe environment.

“Having listened to our customers and colleagues, we will continue to have safety measures in place in our stores; these include limiting the number of people in store at any time, protective screens at every checkout, hand sanitiser stations and regular cleaning.

“We’re asking our customers and colleagues to be on the safe side, and so from July 19 we’ll be encouraging our colleagues to wear face coverings whilst they work and encouraging our customers to do the same when they shop with us.”
