FACE COVERINGS

21st-August-2020

IMPORTANT UPDATE Effective immediately, we ask that all customers wear a face covering when attending the mart following the latest advice from the Livestock Auctioneers Association. "Government announced 10 days ago that the wearing of Face Coverings for people attending “Auction Houses†and visiting “Retail Outlets†was mandatory. I have been asking Defra to clarify if Livestock Markets are included in these new rules. Government has today confirmed that Face Coverings MUST be worn by all customers and other visitors attending English indoor livestock markets. Members should be reminded that the requirement to wear face covering does NOT replace the requirements for Social Distancing, or the provision of adequate hand sanitising stations." (There is still to only be one vendor per livestock entry, and no children under the age of 16)
