West Lancashire MP Rosie Cooper has raised concerns locally about the adherence to mandatory mask wearing at Asda Skelmersdale.
Concerned constituents have contacted Rosie Cooper MP reporting ‘lax implementation’ of the Covid-19 regulations which have made wearing masks in shops necessary.
MP Rosie raised these concerns with local Police and the store itself.
West Lancashire MP Rosie Cooper said:
“It does concern me when residents are reporting that retailers may not be actively encouraging their customers to wear face masks to help reduce the spread of Covid-19.
“I raised these concerns with Lancashire Constabulary and Asda Skelmersdale asking what measures are in place to ensure customers are wearing masks.
“I am pleased to report that the Police are actively working with the store and have been to visit, speaking with shoppers and advising them that not wearing masks could lead to fines.
“Following the previous easing of restrictions the rate of the virus is growing and it is vital that health and safety measures in place not only for the public but for staff members.”
