PUBLIC INFORMATION PAGES FROM CAMDEN COUNCIL

As well as social distancing and washing your hands regularly, wearing a face covering is important to keep yourself and others safe.

From tomorrow, 24 July, it will be mandatory to wear face coverings in shops, in addition to public transport and in hospitals. You should also wear a face covering in enclosed public spaces

where you cannot safely socially distance. Keeping your face covering clean and practising good hand hygiene is essential to stop the spread of the virus. 

Here are some tips:

• When you put on and take off your face covering, avoid touching the inside.

• Before and after you put on and remove your face covering, wash your hands or use hand sanitiser.

• If you have a cloth face covering, wash after every use.

• If you are using single-use face coverings, dispose of them in your rubbish bin at home, or a litter bin if you are outside.

If there is no bin, please take them home to dispose of. For the latest guidance, visit gov.uk/coronavirus
