King's Lynn Street Rangers to deliver face covering posters in town centre
Ahead of face coverings becoming mandatory in shops and supermarkets tomorrow, posters are being distributed around Lynn businesses encouraging people to abide with the rules.
Lynn's Street Rangers will be delivering posters in the town centre today encouraging people to wear a face covering in line with government guidelines.
Discover King's Lynn manager Vicky Etheridge said: "They are working hard to get posters round to shops. The Rangers will support retailers if required and in keeping with their role."
As of tomorrow (July 24), customers must have their nose and mouth covered when they go shopping or risk a £100 fine – reduced to £50 if it is paid within 14 days.
It will be up to police to dish out penalties rather than business owners or shop workers, although they are being asked to encourage customers to comply.
A Lynn News poll showed 61 per cent of respondents supported the government's decision to make face coverings mandatory in supermarkets and shops.
