Face mask policies were dropped in England in July, but were re-introduced this week. Iceland and Co-op, two large supermarket chains in the UK, have publicly said they will tell staff not to enforce the new divisive mask rules. They will allow people who are unmasked to enter their stores and will serve them. The British Retail Consortium said that it was the responsibility of the police to enforce the rules. People can make a difference by refusing to comply with unlawful policies.

Two large supermarket chains in the UK have refused to make their staff police mandatory face mask rules, with one boss asserting that the issue is too “divisive.”

New face mask rules were imposed in England from today, meaning people who use public transport, enter shops and innumerable other venues have to wear a compulsory face covering.

According to Oxford Professor Jim Naismith, re-imposing face mask rules is “unlikely to have much of an impact” on the spread of the Omicron variant.

Wary of how contentious the issue has become, Iceland and Co-op, two large supermarket chains in the UK, have publicly said they will tell staff not to enforce such rules.

Richard Walker, managing director of Iceland, said the company would instead be concentrating its efforts on the “long-term recovering of the high street.”
