Morrisons' incredible way of helping shoppers who forget their face mask

Since the pandemic started a face mask is one extra thing we’ve had to remember to take with us.

But just as people can forget their wallet, phone and keys many have been caught out and about without their mask.

Since Tuesday, November 30 this could be a fineable offence with the government insisting masks must be worn in shops and on public transport.

It comes amid fears over the spread of the new ‘Omicron’ variant of coronavirus.

(A company that promotes informed consumer choice in the purchase of goods and services), Aldi has been named as the cheapest supermarket in the UK for the second month running, beating its rival Lidl. Which? found a basket of 23 items from Aldi cost £24.24 on average in October 2021, compared to £24.97 at Lidl. (Photo by Dinendra Haria/SOPA Images/LightRocket via Getty Images)

Shoppers could face fines of £200 for refusing to wear a mask when required, which could rise to £400 for a second infraction and £800 for a third.

In response major supermarket chains have released statements outlining the position they’ll take but Morrisons have gone the extra mile to support people who leave the house forgetting their mask.

They have said they’ll be offering a free face covering to any customer who has forgotten theirs.

A spokesperson for Morrisons said: “We will be following all updated government guidelines to keep our customers and colleagues safe.”
