Do you have to wear a face mask in the cinema? All the places you now have to wear a covering
As of Saturday, people in England and Scotland are now required to wear face coverings in more indoor public settings, following an uptick in infection rates across several regions in the country.
Announcing the changes last week, Boris Johnson said: ‘We will also extend the requirement to wear a face-covering to other indoor settings where you are likely to come into contact with people you do not normally meet.’
Nicola Sturgeon later confirmed Scotland will follow suit.
Which settings do the new rules cover and do you have to cover up inside the cinema?

It is now necessary to wear a face covering inside cinemas and you are only permitted to take them off when consuming food or drinks.
Toby Bradon, general manager for Vue cinemas in the UK, Ireland and Denmark, told the BBC he expects customers will follow the rules because coverings have become the the new normal.
He said: ‘Face coverings are becoming more ubiquitous, people wear them on public transport, in other leisure environments.
We recognise that some people will be exempt so it is appropriate that we encourage people to wear them but we wont be policing it.
Meanwhile, Cineworld has urged customers to arrive ‘on time’ as ads and trailers will be shorter than usual.
As of August 8, people are required to wear coverings in the following settings:
In Wales, the current advice is to wear coverings in ‘some circumstances where it might be difficult to stay two metres away from others,’ but the official guidance does not specify particular settings.
In Northern Ireland, rules state it is mandatory to wear a covering in ‘a relevant place’ which ‘generally means a shop or shopping centre’ or anywhere else where goods or services are available to buy or rent.
