The department store is also halting in-home services, unless they are "essential to customers' wellbeing". 

The store has taken this decision to keep their staff and customers safe amidst the current infection concerns and encourage people to avoid non-essential travel.

However, customers can still Click & Collect from their partner store, Waitrose. 

On Tuesday, January 12, Waitrose joined in the supermarket chains to crackdown on customers who are not wearing a mask. 

Marshals at the entrance of the store are offering disposable masks and denying entry to anyone refusing to comply. 

Andrew Murphy, executive director of operations at Waitrose parent company, the John Lewis Partnership, said: "By insisting on the wearing of face coverings, over and above the social distancing measures we already have in place, we aim to make our shops even safer for customers."
