Coronavirus: What are the rules for face masks or face coverings?

The rules differ slightly around the country. What are the face covering rules in schools? In Scotland and Northern Ireland, secondary school pupils will have to wear face coverings between lessons from 31 August. The Scottish government says all pupils over the age of 12 should wear face coverings in corridors and communal areas. However, they will not have to wear them in classrooms. On school buses, everyone over the age of five will have to wear face coverings.

The advice is similar in Northern Ireland, where the education minister said guidance on face coverings would be updated to include wearing them in the corridors of post-primary schools. In England, secondary schools will have the ''discretion'' to require face coverings in communal areas, where social distancing is not possible. This will not include in classrooms during lessons.
