SUPERMARKET chains across Barnsley have revealed they will enforce mask-wearing in all stores.

Morrisons made the announcement yesterday (January 11) that all shoppers must wear a mask inside their stores unless medically exempt.

Sainsbury's soon followed suit after it was revealed that social distancing measures were not adhered to in supermarkets.

David Potts, Morrisons' chief executive, said: "Those who are offered a face covering and decline to wear one won't be allowed to shop at Morrisons unless they are medically exempt.

"Our store colleagues are working hard to feed you and your family, please be kind."

The changes took effect yesterday and wil be observed in the Morrisons in Barnsley town centre.
