Boots has launched two new Protection Kits, one for individuals and one for families, to help prevent the spread of the coronavirus.

Each bundle includes face masks, hand sanitiser and gloves, as well as anti-bacterial surface wipes. Being able to get all these items in one pack is handy, as hand sanitiser and wipes continue to be hard to find in stock.

The packs have been launched just as new government rules come into place which make wearing face coverings mandatory in enclosed public spaces in England.

Speaking about the kits, Joe Mitchell, Boots’ head of healthcare, said: “As lockdown measures are easing and we find ourselves making plans for the rest of the summer, it’s important to take vital steps to protect yourself and others.

“Remember to wear a face covering when travelling on any public transport, regularly wash or sanitise your hands, and even if you are wearing gloves try to avoid touching your face.

“The new Boots Protection Kits include everything you and your family need to travel safely this summer.”
