Petition Keep face covering mandatory in indoor public settings beyond 19th July 2021
The Government has said that face coverings will become a matter of personal choice after 19 July. This petition is to ensure that they remain mandatory in Indoor settings like shops and public transport.
The Government is due to ease COVID-19 related restrictions on the 19th of July. It has been suggested some measures may still be needed as infection rates pick up again.
Face convering use has been a useful tool to minimize virus spread while allowing the population to do regular activities. It's a cheap and easy way to help country in the path to normality and most people are used to it by now. Importantly, they protect others so it should not be down to personal choice.
