From Thursday 24th September, you will be required by the law to wear a face-covering mask in all areas of the plant centre. Wearing a face mask became mandatory in shops and supermarkets in England from July 24. The fine costs up to £200, which is announced by the government. Save yourself from penalties and prepare yourself with a face mask. The face mask can be anything that covers both your mouth and your nose. In fact, homemade coverings are approved for use.

Wearing a face mask whilst shopping at Rushfields provides a confident shop environment. It gives people more confidence to shop safely and enhance protections for those who work in shops. Our members of staff are our precious possession, which we don't want to lose on a virus. Wearing a face-covering mask doesn't only help our staff, but also provides you with a safe shop environment.

- People that communicate through lip-reading communication.
- People that are disabled to put on, wear or remove the face mask because of a physical or mental illness, or impairment, or disability.
- People that are asked by the police, or other official requests to remove the face mask.
