Yes. To ensure the safety of those who come through our doors, and to help stop the spread of Covid-19, it is mandatory for all Highpoint customers and staff to wear a Face Mask unless a lawful exemption applies. 

Face masks are no longer mandatory when you are outdoors, if you can stay 1.5 metres away from people that you don’t live with. 
Why do I need to wear a Face Mask?

You must wear a fitted face mask covering your nose and mouth when you are leaving your home, unless you have a lawful reason for not doing so.

As restrictions ease and movement increases, the effectiveness of a face mask is even more important.
Wearing a face mask helps keep you and others safe, and will help us reach COVID Normal. Coronavirus (COVID-19) is spread from close contact with a person with coronavirus (COVID-19). Face masks help stop droplets spreading when someone speaks, laughs, coughs, or sneezes, including someone who has coronavirus (COVID-19) but feels well.

The best way to protect other people against coronavirus (COVID-19) is keeping 1.5 metres apart, wash your hands often, and cough or sneeze into your elbow or tissue. Face masks are an additional protective physical barrier to protect you and your loved ones.
