Supermarket Tesco have revealed they use a sneaky tactic to stop people from shopping in stores without a face mask.

The UK’s biggest grocer has announced they are staring a scheme which combats customers who turn up mask-less, reports The Mirror.

The supermarket already uses signs to remind people before entering.

But, they have also said that they will not make staff enforce the law which was implemented at the end of July.

Members of the public who do not follow the rules can be fined £100 unless they are exempt.

The amount will be reduced to £50 if it’s paid within two weeks.

Now, the supermarket has said that they will be encouraging customers to wear masks by allowing them to be purchased at the entrance of their shops.

The grocer has confirmed they will be selling them to customers who turn up having forgotten a mask – seems pretty win-win to us.

This means no more running back home to grab one before you can buy your milk.

Tesco has also stated that some staff may be seen working without a mask due to medical exemptions.

They replied to an irate Twitter user who asked why staff were not covering their faces.

Tesco tweeted in response: "Morning Ben, we’ve asked all our customer-facing colleagues to wear face coverings.

"There may be some colleagues, though, who are not wearing masks for medical or safety reasons.

"These reasons are set out by the government."

Medical exemptions cited on the gov.uk website include those with a “physical or mental illness or impairment, or disability” which prevents you from putting on, wearing or removing a face covering.

As well as those for whom "putting on, wearing or removing a face covering will cause you severe distress".
