**New COVID safety regulations from 30 November 2021. Mask wearing will be compulsory for indoor retail and on all public transport.**

Keep a mask handy when you visit Crystal Palace for shopping this month.

Face coverings are strongly encouraged for all crowded settings over the festive season.

We hope that we have your support. Please do what you can to support our local businesses and keep our community safe and healthy.

We have many family and owner-run businesses in Crystal Palace. If a vital member of the team has to go into isolation, it can have a devastating effect on their livelihood.

We also recommend you use free Lateral Flow Test kits, for extra peace of mind before you go out during the festive season.
