Breaking News ! Aldi and Waitrose are the latest supermarkets to enforce masks in stores in a nationwide crackdown on rule-breakers. The retail giants have joined Morrisons, Sainsbury's, Tesco and Asda to ban shoppers who refuse to wear a face covering in a bid to curb the virus. German discounter Aldi has warned customers who don't follow the new coronavirus rules will be turned away at the door from today. Customers are also being urged to shop alone to reduce the number of people in store.

"Anyone without a medical exemption that refuses to wear a mask is not permitted to enter stores." Waitrose has said staff will stop customers from shopping who refuse to wear a mask in stores, unless medically exempt. The upmarket retailer will also provide disposable masks for customers and will ensure only one member of each household is permitted to shop, where possible. It comes as John Lewis became the first major retailer in Scotland to suspend its click and collect services amid a shopping crackdown. The high street giant said it was responding to a "clear change in tone and emphasis" from the government as millions are urged to stay at home. John Lewis will no longer allow shoppers to collect items in department stores as coronavirus infections soar. It comes as Nicola Sturgeon warned services like click and collect, takeaways and the construction industry could be restricted.

Click and collect orders from department stores were "switched off to new orders" from Tuesday. However, its sister retailer Waitrose will still allow shoppers to get click and collect orders. It is hoped that the measures will help to curb the spread of coronavirus in the supermarkets as Scotland enters its second week of lockdown restrictions. NHS Test and Trace data from south of the border in November revealed that supermarkets were the most common place to catch coronavirus. The research found that 18.3% of people with Covid-19 caught it while they were out grocery shopping. It is currently illegal to enter a supermarket without a face covering in Scotland, unless you have a medical exemption. Scots face a fine of £60 for a first time breach of the rules, which is then doubled on every repeat offence up to a maximum value of £960.

During the Scottish Government press briefing on Tuesday, the First Minister said: “I welcome some of the announcements and commitments made by some supermarkets yesterday to make sure that they’re playing their part in helping encourage the use of face coverings.”
