1 1 12

The vast majority of shoppers, commuters and businesses in Norfolk are still choosing to wear face coverings despite the relaxation of rules.

Business owners have been asked about what their approach has been in regard to people entering their venues following Freedom Day, with them reporting that most customers walk through their doors with a mask on.

Patrick Duffy, owner of Palace Bingo, Casino and Cinema in Great Yarmouth, implemented a strict approach to Covid safety to "protect everybody" and said measures had not changed at all since.

Mr Duffy said: "You have to wear your mask when entering, leaving and moving about the premises and that has been 100pc adhered to."

Elsewhere in the town, St George's Theatre assistant general manager, Kate Rivett, said most people are "masked up" when they enter the theatre, but since July the amount of people wearing masks has gone down.

And Tom Smith, manager of Lek Thai, said many people were "still sticking to the old rules."
