Footage shared on social media shows a group of people walking the aisles of a supermarket in Chelmsford without a mask

Under current law, as part of government measures to control coronavirus transmission, it is illegal to go to a store or use public transit without wearing a face covering

An exception are people with certain illnesses that make it unsafe to wear a mask

The mask-free shopping spree seems to be part of an organized protest against the enforcement of face-covering

Police were called into the store on Saturday to speak to those who weren’t wearing masks, Tesco told Chelmsford Weekly News

The supermarket said staff would encourage customers to abide by the law but added that they would not “put themselves at risk if challenged”

DHSC reminds shoppers that masks “are primarily intended to protect others, not the wearer, from the spread of infection as they cover the nose and mouth, which are the main confirmed sources of transmission”
