Coronavirus (COVID-19)—government announces new, stronger enforcement measures

The government has announced new, stronger enforcement measures aimed at targeting the most serious breaches of social distancing restrictions following the easing of coronavirus (COVID-19) social distancing measures. Individuals who repeatedly fail to adhere to the rules regarding face coverings will receive a fine of £3,200. New fines are also set to be introduced for those hosting raves or other unlawful gatherings of more than 30 people. Additionally, the government has confirmed that skating rinks, bowling alleys, casinos, indoor play and soft play centres can reopen for the first time as long as they comply with coronavirus secure guidelines. Tattoo studios, spas, beauty salons and barbers across England will also be able to provide close contact services, while individuals can also now have up to 30 people at wedding receptions. Lastly, sports and business events pilots are set to resume.
