Holidaymakers have been advised to keep wearing masks on some of the UK’s most popular beaches, according to reports.
Cornwall Council has asked visitors to use a face covering and exercise social distancing, citing a high number of Covid cases in the county.
The move was echoed by the local authority that covers the Lincolnshire resorts of Skegness and Mablethorpe in a bid to ensure ‘the virus isn’t spread unnecessarily.’
Cornwall Council wrote a Facebook post on Friday asking for visitors to ‘wash their hands, wear a face covering where you can and keep your distance in crowded places this Easter’.
According to the Telegraph, it also urged anyone who was feeling unwell or had coronavirus symptoms to stay at home.
A spokesman for Public Health Lincolnshire warned holidaymakers and day trippers that ‘Covid is still with us’ and they should take ‘personal responsibility’.
The advice comes as Covid cases begin to fall across most of the UK, according to the latest figures from the Office for National Statistics.
