COVID REQUIREMENTS FOLLOWING GOVERNMENT RULES AS FROM DECEMBER 13th 2021
In England, face coverings are now required by law in most indoor public places
Face coverings are not required in hospitality venues where food and drink are consumed (such as pubs, cafés and restaurants), or during exercise (such as gyms), including dancing (such as nightclubs).
In indoor settings where a face covering is not legally required, you should continue to wear a face covering in crowded and enclosed spaces where you may encounter other people you do not normally meet.
Some people, including children under 11, are exempt from having to wear face coverings in any setting. Furthermore, anyone with a health condition or disability, which means they cannot wear a face covering, has a reasonable excuse for not wearing a face covering.
When to wear a face covering
Community centres (including village halls), youth centres, members clubs and social clubs
You are required to wear a face covering on entering any of these settings and must keep it on until you leave unless you are exempt or have a reasonable excuse for removing it. Examples of what would usually be a reasonable excuse are listed in the ‘If you are not able to wear a face covering’ section below.
You should continue to wear a face covering in other indoor places, especially those that are crowded and enclosed and where you may encounter people you do not normally meet.
Face coverings are not legally required in hospitality settings given that they cannot be worn while eating and drinking.
Enforcement measures for failing to comply with this law
Settings in which face coverings are required must display signage or take other measures to ensure customers are aware of the requirement to wear a face covering on their premises where there is no applicable exemption or reasonable excuse.
The police and police community support officers can enforce compliance if members of the public do not comply with this law without a reasonable excuse.
When you do not need to wear a face covering
Face coverings are only legally required in the settings listed in ‘When to wear a face covering’ section above. Settings which are exempt from wearing a face covering because it would not be practical to do so include:
Face coverings are also not required in premises or a part of a premises where the main activity is eating, drinking, exercising, or dancing. This might include venues being used to host wedding receptions or some music events as well as restaurants, pubs, bars, and nightclubs. This is because it is not practical for people to wear a face covering when eating or drinking, and it is not recommended that face coverings are worn when undertaking strenuous activity, including exercising and dancing.
While not mandatory, you should continue to wear a face covering in indoor places, which are crowded and enclosed and where you may encounter people you do not normally meet.
Here is a reasonable excuse for someone to remove a face covering when it is reasonably necessary for them to sing, for example, if they are singing as part of a choir, or during a service, rehearsal or for a performance.
This does not extend to circumstances where it is not reasonably necessary to sing. For example, it may not be reasonably necessary for someone to sing whilst shopping, on public transport, or whilst in an in-scope setting such as a cinema, theatre, or library.
This change allows those who are taking part in activities where singing is reasonably necessary to choose to remove their face covering if they prefer while singing.
