Supermarkets have continued to update shopping rules as the coronavirus pandemic continues. Tesco has shared more information on what customers must do when visiting branches.
Shopping rules have been constantly updated during the coronavirus pandemic in line with government guidance.
Wearing face masks in stores has been mandatory in most parts of the UK since July.
However, government advice is continuing to change with stricter measures being introduced this week.
Tesco has shared details on how it is responding to the pandemic in an email from Tesco's UK & Ireland CEO Jason Tarry today.

The statement explained: "I wanted to share an update on what we’re doing to ensure that everyone can get the food they need in a safe environment.
"To help protect our customers and colleagues, we have introduced some new measures in line with current government guidance, and also made sure the safety measures we introduced at the start of the pandemic remain in place."Face masks
Where shopping masks are required, the government has increased fines from £100 to £200 for a first offence.
Some exemptions are in place for those who cannot wear a mask for medical reasons.
However, Tesco has explained shoppers who forget a mask should pick one up at the entrance to pay for later.
