Costa and Sainsbury's won't stop customers if they refuse to wear masks
High street chains like Costa Coffee and Sainsbury’s will not penalise customers who fail to wear face coverings in their stores when new laws come into force.
Despite pleas from the government for retailers to enforce the regulations with the help of police, some have said they will not challenge customers who enter their stores unmasked.
From today in England, customers will be breaking coronavirus laws if they do not wear a face covering in shops, shopping centres, banks, takeaway outlets, post offices, sandwich shops and supermarkets.
