What you need to know about face coverings

A video blog by Gary Bourlet, Membership and Engagement Lead at Learning Disability England

The rules about wearing face coverings in England change today, the 24th July.

Gary has made a video blog to help everyone understand about these new rules.

Watch Gary’s video blog here.

He talks about how to wear a face covering and when you should wear one.

A face covering does not have to be a mask. It can also be things like a scarf or a covering made at home as long as it covers your nose and mouth.

Gary also talks about people who are exempt. This means people who do not have to wear a face covering for medical reasons or because of their age.

You can find more resources about wearing face coverings on our Coronavirus Hub.
