From today (Friday 24 July), you must follow the government’s guidelines and wear a face covering in shops, supermarkets, banks, takeaways, on public transport and hospitals.
Additionally, Telford and Wrekin Council are making it mandatory for everyone visiting Telford & Wrekin Libraries to wear a face covering.
Remember to wash or sanitise your hands when putting on, or removing your face covering. Disposable face covers need to be bagged and placed in your waste bin – NOT in your recycling bin! Reusable face coverings should be washed regularly.
Exemptions include young children, people with breathing difficulties and people living with a disability.

This is for your safety and that of our staff. A face covering may protect others and helps to reduce the spread of coronavirus.
Libraries in Southwater, Wellington, Newport and Oakengates are open but with reduced opening hours.
Here’s a reminder of what you need to know when visiting:
Wear a face covering
Use the hand sanitiser unit at the entrance to each library
↔️ Follow the directional signage for social distancing
Only return, browse & borrow books
Keep your visit to around 15 min, to ensure everyone has a chance to access the service
❌ The use of public computers, printing, photocopying and all Council First Point services will NOT be available
