Morrisons will ban customers who refuse to wear a face mask at its Netherfield store.
From today (11) shoppers who refuse to wear face masks offered by staff will not be allowed inside, unless they are medically exempt.
The supermarket giant has introduced the measures across the UK amid concerns that social distancing measures are not being adhered to in supermarkets.
Morrisons said it would continue to offer face coverings to any customers who had forgotten them and who were not exempt from wearing them for medical reasons.
David Potts, Morrisons chief executive, said: “Those who are offered a face covering and decline to wear one won’t be allowed to shop at Morrisons unless they are medically exempt. Our store colleagues are working hard to feed you and your family – please be kind.”
Security guards at the UK’s fourth-biggest supermarket chain will be enforcing the new rules.
