Humberside Police officers to continue wearing masks

Humberside Police officers to continue wearing masks.

Humberside Police says its officers will continue to wear face masks despite the legal obligation to do so being lifted.

The force said it had taken the decision in order to protect the public, officers and their families.

Assistant Chief Constable Darren Downs said he also hoped people would respect other’s decisions.

“Although the restrictions have now been eased, we will continue to urge people to remain vigilant to ensure personal safety and that of others,” he said.

“Guidance remains in place and masks in public places are advised.

Mr Downs added: “This continues to be a strange time for most, and many will feel anxious about the final phase of restrictions easing.

“We must remain cautious but also respectful of other people views should they wish to follow previous mandatory guidance by continuing to wear masks and social distance.”
