As we are facing a new strain of covid we urge everyone to stay calm and continue to follow government guidance. Until we have more information on these developments, we encourage everyone to remain vigilant and continue to sanitize.

Due to this new strain of covid, new rules have been put in place as a precaution until more information is gathered and assessed. Face covering must now be worn in shops and on public transport. These rules have only been enforced in England at this time.

The government is suggesting that even in other indoor settings where face masks are not required, you should continue to wear them when mixing with people you would not normally meet.

Please see the official guidance on the government website here.

Please see details of where face coverings are not required in, The Health Protection (Coronavirus, Wearing of Face Coverings) (England) Regulations 2021.

We believe that this is an important step to protect both ourselves and everyone around us. We will continue to work with our ever-growing alliance of patient organisations across the Uk to ensure that the voices of the people are heard.  

Remember NRAS masks and Keep Your Distance tote bags are still available in our shop.
