Minister calls for respect over face coverings

The Island's Health Minister has urged people to respect each other after reports of people receiving abuse for not wearing face coverings.

David Ashford MHK has reiterated some will have legitimate reasons for not wearing one.

Meanwhile, Mr Ashford also says he's heard of isolated cases of local pharmacists receiving abuse, and is asking people to show courtesy and patience to key workers.

Masks are mandatory in hospital settings and on public transport and retail outlets across the Island have also made them compulsory in their stores - certain individuals may be excused from wearing one if they have a valid exemption.

Current government advice outside of this is that face coverings are 'strongly advised' outdoors and in workplaces.
