Venues legally required to enforce rule of six amid coronavirus (COVID-19)

The government has announced that from 18 September 2020 hospitality and leisure venues in England are legally required to enforce the rule of six in order to help stop the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19). The regulations will be upheld by Local Authorities who are able to issue fines of up to £1,000. Businesses and organisations that are repeat offenders could face fines of up to £4,000. In addition, from 18 September 2020, some venues will be legally required to maintain records of customer contact details and from 24 September 2020 these businesses will also be required to display an official NHS QR code poster.

Venues included in the new legal requirements are:

• hospitality, including pubs, bars, restaurants and cafés

• tourism and leisure, including gyms, swimming pools, hotels, museums, cinemas, zoos and theme parks 

• close contact services, including hairdressers (facilities provided by local authorities, including town halls and civic centres (for events), libraries and children’s centres )
