From today (November 30) wearing a face mask will be compulsory once again in shops and on public transport in Hull and East Yorkshire.

While many have become used to being 'back to normal' and Christmas shopping at ease, new Covid-safe measures means shoppers will have to remember their masks from now on.

What's more, those travelling in and around the city must wear a mask on buses, trains, and planes.

It comes after Health Secretary Sajid Javid outlined new rules people must follow after six new cases of the Omicron variant were discovered in the UK. In total, 14 cases of the new variant have been found in the UK so far - in Scotland, Essex and Nottingham.

First cases of the new variant were initially detected in South Africa and UK-bound flights from the country, along with several other African nations, have been grounded.

Now anyone entering the UK will require a PCR test within 48 hours of arrival and must self-isolate until they have a negative result.
