COVID-19 Update – Mandatory Face Coverings - 21/07/2020
Dear Camper UK Customers,
Following the Government’s announcement on 10th July and subsequent update on Friday 17th July, we are now able to confirm the following in relation to the wearing of face coverings:
Camper UK falls within the description of ‘Shops and Branches’ and therefore from Friday 24th July it will become mandatory for customers to wear a face covering upon entering our business.
‘Shops and supermarkets will be expected to encourage compliance with the law (as they would do more generally) and can refuse entry. If necessary, the police have the powers to enforce these measures, including through issuing a fine of £100 (halving to £50 if paid within 14 days).
Sales, Aftersales (servicing and workshop use) and Parts customers attending the business by appointment will be reminded prior to their arrival that a face covering is required to enter our premises, and those customers arriving at the site without a face covering may be turned away. However, any customers arriving without a face covering shall be offered one upon arrival subject to availability.
Please pay attention to all signage in place at all entrances of our building reminding you that face coverings are required for entry to the premises.
It is important to note that some customers may be exempt from wearing a face covering, so please be considerate of one another. The conditions under which this may apply are listed below:
young children under the age of 11
not being able to put on, wear or remove a face covering because of a physical or mental illness or impairment, or disability
if putting on, wearing or removing a face covering will cause severe distress
if travelling with or providing assistance to someone who relies on lip reading to communicate
to avoid harm or injury, or the risk of harm or injury, to themselves or others
to avoid injury, or to escape a risk of harm, and they do not have a face covering with them
to eat or drink, but only if they need to
to take medication
if a police officer or other official requests they remove the face covering
