New Government regulations relating to COVID-19 came into force from 04:00 on Tuesday 30 November.
You can see the new regulations on the Government’s website.
We know that the past few years have been challenging, and we’d like to say thank you to everyone across Essex who’ve been doing their bit to keep each other safe from COVID-19.
From 4am this morning, Tuesday 30 November, face masks will once again be mandatory in shops and on public transport, unless you are exempt.
Our approach has been, and will continue to be, to take a common sense approach to policing the Government’s COVID-19 regulations.
We will engage with residents and visitors to Essex, to explain these regulations and encourage them to do the right thing.
If you see or hear of a clear and blatant breach of the regulations, or witness threatening or abusive behaviour towards any of our key workers, please tell us.
Where clear and blatant breaches are reported and when reasoned conversation is not successful, we will take enforcement action.
We all have a responsibility to follow the regulations and the guidance in place to protect our NHS and we must all play our part to keep ourselves, families, friends and neighbours safe.
You can contact us online or use the 'Live Chat' button to speak to an online operator between 7am-11pm.
Alternatively, you can call 101.
Full details of the Government’s COVID-19 regulations can be found on their website.
