Face coverings must still be worn

Face coverings must still be worn in East Sussex County Council buildings

Visitors to East Sussex County Council buildings will still be required to wear a mask or face covering from Monday, July 19.

The precaution is being urged to help protect customers and staff from Covid-19 while in enclosed public spaces at council sites, including libraries.

Public safety is the council’s priority, especially for the most vulnerable. Lower infection rates will also help the council maintain its services to the public by keeping staff levels high.

The wearing of face coverings will also apply to people joining ceremonies led by a registrar from the county council.

Darrell Gale, Director of Public Health for East Sussex, said: “Wearing face-coverings offers some additional protection from catching and passing on the virus. That’s why visitors to the county council’s buildings and people taking part in wedding ceremonies where we officiate are urged to continue to wear a face-covering.

“We want to keep everyone in our communities as safe as possible and we want to ensure that public services aren’t weakened by high levels of infection and illness. Our thanks to everyone in our communities who continues to play their part in protecting each other.”
