Face coverings have become mandatory in Wales in all public indoor spaces for both employees and customers / service users from 14th September 2020 unless they are exempt or have a reasonable excuse not to wear one.
Full guidance on the wearing of face coverings has been developed.
The current Government advice is that the wearing of Respiratory Protective Equipment (RPE) is only required in medical environments and other settings where care is being provided for people who either have symptoms, have been tested positive or medically diagnosed with Coronavirus, and staff cannot maintain adequate social distancing when providing care or other interventions.
Specific risk assessments will be required for those staff working outside an office environment such as depot settings, construction, catering and social care. The requirement for PPE will be identified as part of the risk assessment that your manager will complete .
