Over the national lockdown period and beyond, you may spot COVID marshals in Bristol, particularly in busy areas of the city with a high amount of footfall due to supermarket visits.
Marshals are here to:
- Encourage social distancing and face coverings
- Check businesses that remain open in lockdown are COVID-secure
- Hand out face coverings and hand sanitiser
- Clean frequently touched surfaces
They cannot enforce compliance or issue fines, but do work closely with Avon & Somerset Police, and will report breaches when necessary.
Please respect our marshals and keep playing your part in protecting our city from coronavirus. More info at www.bristol.gov.uk/coronavirus
