Coronavirus: What are the rules for face masks or face coverings?

Prime Minister Boris Johnson says face coverings will become compulsory in England for bar staff, shop workers, waiters and taxi drivers to help control the spread of coronavirus.

People around the UK already have to wear them in shops and on public transport.

Rules are also in place in some schools and places like galleries and museums.

What are the face covering rules in shops?

Face coverings must be worn by customers in shops, supermarkets and shopping centres around the UK.

Those who fail to do so can be fined by the police - up to £100 in England (soon to rise to £200), or £60 in Scotland, Northern Ireland and Wales.

Shop workers will now also have to wear a face covering.

What about on public transport?

Face coverings are compulsory for anyone travelling by public transport in England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland (unless they have an exemption or a reasonable excuse).

Passengers boarding aircraft in England, Scotland and Wales must wear a face covering - Northern Ireland also recommends their use.

People can be refused travel if they do not follow the rules, and can be fined as a last resort.
