New lockdown restrictions came into force across the UK this week in an effort to curb the spread of coronavirus as cases continue to rise.
This means pubs, bars and restaurants across the country must close at 10pm, everyone, unless exempt, caught not wearing a face mask where required will be fined £200 and visiting other people's homes is banned.
The rules were set out by Prime Minister Boris Johnson during a statement in which he also advised restrictions could be in place for the next six months.
He confirmed that people working in retail will need to wear face masks, as will people in taxis and all staff and customers in hospitality.
Since the new rules have come into force, supermarkets have put several new measures into place, meaning your next shop might be very different.
Here’s the changes you’ll notice at Tesco, Morrisons, Sainsbury’s, Aldi, Lidl and Asda:
Tesco has brought back restrictions on several products such as flour, pasta, toilet rolls and antibacterial wipes.
A Tesco spokeswoman said: ."We have good availability, with plenty of stock to go round, and we would encourage our customers to shop as normal.
"To ensure everyone can keep buying what they need, we have introduced bulk-buy limits on a small number of products."
You can also order from Tesco online, though the retailer says it is at full capacity for delivery slots for the next few weeks and is asking anyone who currently has one to shop in store if they are able to, in order to free up slots up for those who need them most.
Morrisons brought back some limits on items this week too.
The supermarket said it was limiting products such as toilet roll, disinfectants and bleach to a maximum of three items per customer.
You can order from Morrisons online, though the retailer is advising customers it is dealing with high demand for delivery slots and recommends booking as far in advance as possible.
Morrisons has recently reinstated marshals on the doors of its 494 supermarkets and re-introduced restrictions on some key products - including toilet roll, cleaning items, kitchen roll, and other items too.
There will be a front of store host to monitor customer numbers and manage the queue outside.

Sainsbury's is currently only limiting items for customers shopping online, so anyone shopping in store shouldn’t have much trouble.
In a statement on its website Sainsbury's said: "Please follow official guidelines for your local area and wear a face covering when shopping in our stores in England and Scotland.
"We have limited the number of people in our stores and at our ATMs at any one time. We have also put queuing systems in place outside stores and ask you to queue at a safe distance of two metres apart.
"Please try to keep a safe distance from other customers and from our colleagues when you are doing your shop. We have placed clear markings on shop floors to help you know what a safe distance is.
"We are asking everyone to only send one adult per household to our shops. This helps us keep people a safe distance apart and also helps to reduce queues to get into stores.
"Our store teams will be asking groups with more than one adult to choose one adult to shop and will ask other adults to wait. Children are welcome if they are not able to stay at home."
Aldi has sent a message to all customers asking them to continue to wear a face covering in stores and advised staff will be doing the same.
The bargain retailer will also have a range of safety measures in place including a traffic light system in place at store entrances to limit the number of customers inside at one time.
Aldi CEO Giles Hurley has also reassured customers that stores remain fully stocked and has asked customers to “shop considerately”.
Lidl has put a crowd control system in place to help manage social distancing in stores.
This includes positioning security guards or designated team members at store entrances during busy times of the day, to keep track of how many customers enter our stores at one time.
A spokesman said: "To help you plan your next store visit, we’ve put a traffic light system in place so you can find the quietest time to shop. Of course some stores will vary slightly, and make sure you check your local store opening hours too."
Customers are asked to use contactless payment where possible and the limit has now been increased from £30 to £45 in all stores.
Asda will have safety marshals stationed at the front of every store and in the aisles of larger stores.
They will be on hand to help customers with safety queries and reiterate Government guidelines to wear a face covering and maintain social distancing while they shop.
Customers who do not have a covering when they enter the store will be offered a pack of disposable masks that they can pay for as they complete their shopping.
Additionally, those marshals stationed at the store entrance will provide sanitised baskets and trolleys to customers as they enter the store.

The number of customers being allowed into Asda stores will continue to be limited when necessary.
Asda has made some temporary changes due to the current high demand for its delivery slots.
In order to manage demand and make sure Asda is serving every online customer possible, new delivery passes are not available right now.
Unfortunately it cannot guarantee delivery slots to existing Delivery Pass customers either, so if you do not save money on your delivery pass, Asda will refund the difference automatically with an eVoucher.
