It comes after concerns raised by shoppers that supermarkets are not being tough enough on social distancing measures.

Chief executive David Potts said: “Those who are offered a face covering and decline to wear one won’t be allowed to shop at Morrisons unless they are medically exempt.

"Our store colleagues are working hard to feed you and your family, please be kind.”

There are two Morrisons stores in the county; one in Banbury and one in Carterton.
