Disposable face coverings – June 2020

As the first national lockdown came to an end, with non-essential retail being allowed to reopen from 15 June. The Broadmead BID team distributed over 80,000 free disposable face coverings for store teams and shoppers to use.

The disposable masks were intended to be used when an alternative wasn’t available, to prevent stores having to turn customers away. Using the Bristol Shopping Quarter website and social media accounts we recommend the use of reusable face coverings, which are much better for the environment, highlighting some of the stores where they can be purchased.
