The Police and Crime Commissioner is encouraging people to play their part as the compulsory wearing of face masks is introduced in shops and on public transport, as part of measures to reduce the spread of the Omicron coronavirus variant.
Commissioner John Campion said “It is easy to play our part, to keep ourselves, our loved ones and our communities safe. We have all made personal sacrifices over a sustained period of time, but unfortunately Covid still poses a real risk.
“This comes at a crucial time with Christmas just around the corner and we must take personal responsibility. Wearing a mask is a simple precaution which can allow us to enjoy our freedom, and celebrate with family and friends.”
