"At the moment, the use of face coverings is mandatory in shops and on public transport.  And we are very satisfied that the vast majority of people are complying with those requirements, and I want to thank the public for that.

"When it comes to other enclosed spaces, we currently advise people to wear face coverings.  But we have not made it mandatory.
