What are the face mask rules in the UK?

There have been many changes in rules for masks in England and the UK recently. Boris Johnson has announced new rules meaning you must wear a mask when inside public places.

These public places include inside areas like churches, museums, hairdressers and shops. However, in restaurants you will not need to wear a mask while at a table eating.

In England, people are under 11 years old, have a disability or cannot wear a mask, will not have to meet these new rules. For anyone else, they must respect the new rules as the law and the police may fine people.
