Mask wearing Rules
The rule "Adults and children aged six and over must wear a face covering when out in public, in open-air areas and in public indoor spaces, except when eating, during physical exercise and/or if you have a disability or a respiratory illness."
How about on the beach? mask wearing on a beach rules are pragmatic and about showing respect to each other. When you are at your lounging spot you can remove your mask if distances are respected. You will need to wear a mask when moving about eg to/from the beach or walking along the beach. You dont need to wear a mask but again be respectful of distances to others. Lifeguards are friendly folks and will remind you nicely if they think you are straying from the spirit of the rules ( if they need to call a Policeman, frankly you've probably been an idiot ! )
