NOW that most legal coronavirus restrictions have been lifted, we decided to ask readers if they would still be following them post July 19.

At the time of writing, 87 per cent of readers who answered the poll posted on the Guardian's Facebook story said they would still be following coronavirus restrictions like wearing a face mask.

Just 13 per cent said they would not be following the restrictions which were previously in place.

The Government has said people will still be expected to wear face coverings in certain situations and ministers have urged people to 'respect' businesses and public transport providers insisting on mask wearing continuing.

So, where will people need to wear face coverings now restrictions have eased?

Health leaders, politicians, shop bosses and transport chiefs have all said that they will continue to require or encourage people to wear face coverings.

This means that face coverings may be required in some premises, on some bus and train services, hospitals and GP surgeries.

Do people still need masks to go to the shops then?

Supermarket chain Sainsbury’s on Wednesday said it would encourage all customers to continue wearing face coverings from July 19 if they can.

Tesco, Asda, Lidl, Morrisons and Waitrose also came out to say they will encourage customers and staff to continue wearing masks in their supermarkets from when restrictions ease.

Staff and customers at Waitrose and John Lewis have also been recommended to continue wearing masks but the John Lewis Partnership said it will ultimately be up to individual judgment.

What about transport providers?

Face coverings will continue to be compulsory in some locally operated public transport spaces.

Northern Rail re-tweeted the following from Rail Delivery Group: "From today, we expect people to follow government advice, and to wear a face covering (unless exempt) in crowded spaces, out of respect for others.

Face coverings are there to protect other people, not just you."

Cross-Channel train firm Eurostar, airlines such as British Airways, easyJet and Ryanair, plus Heathrow Airport will continue to require passengers to wear face coverings.

Heathrow Express, which operates services to London Paddington, said face coverings will remain mandatory.

Train companies such as Avanti West Coast, TransPennine Express and Southeastern, plus major bus and coach companies including National Express and Megabus, will not demand mask-wearing.

The Confederation of Passenger Transport (CPT), which represents major bus and coach operators such as National Express and Megabus, has also said that its members will not mandate the wearing of face coverings.

Uber has also said drivers and passengers will continue to be required to wear a mask even though they will no longer be required by law.

What about going to a hospital or GP appointment?

Staff, patients and visitors in all NHS settings must continue to wear face coverings and observe social distancing, Public Health England (PHE) has said.

PHE said infection prevention measures and visiting guidance will continue across all health services including hospitals, GP practices, dental practices, optometrists and pharmacies, to ensure patients and staff are protected.

Staff, patients and visitors will be expected to continue to follow social distancing rules when visiting any care setting, as well as using face coverings and other personal protection equipment.
