Supermarket rules have changed ahead of further local lockdowns.

Asda, Lidl, Aldi, Sainsbury’s and Morrisons have also updated their rules and guidelines to meet social distancing rules.

Masks are already mandatory in supermarkets unless you are exempt.

And, most major supermarkets have asked those who do not require deliveries to leave spots open for vulnerable customers.

Hand sanitiser and basket sterilising stations are available in some stores.

Tesco has also added new rules to keep shoppers and staff safe during the coronavirus pandemic.

According to the ECHO, these are the new Tesco rules being put into place:

  • Staff at the entrances of larger stores to remind customers about the safety measures in place, including the legal requirement to wear a face covering.
  • Where necessary, Tesco will limit the flow of people coming into stores to make sure they don’t get too busy.
  • Hand sanitisers are being placed around stores for customers and colleagues to use, as well as extra cleaning products to wipe down your trolley or basket.
  • In some stores, Tesco will introduce directional floor markings and new signs to create a safe flow of movement around the store.
  • New floor markings will help you to keep a safe distance from others while waiting to pay.
  • Tesco is installing protective screens at its checkouts.
  • Where possible, it will create separate entrances and exits to its stores, so it’s easier to keep a safe distance from other shoppers.
  • Tesco is encouraging customers to shop on their own to help reduce the number of people in-store at any one time.
  • If possible, use card or contactless payments.
  • Please avoid shopping during Tesco's dedicated times for vulnerable elderly people.

Shoppers are advised to follow supermarket guidelines to protect one another.

If you are self-isolating or shielding it is advised that you have your food shopping delivered to your home.

Many supermarkets also ask that you shop alone, rather than as a family or couple.
