28.09.20 update:

The government has announced new measures to help reduce the spread of coronavirus. These include:

  • Face coverings must be worn by shop staff, taxi drivers and passengers
  • All pubs, bars and restaurants are table service only. Takeaways can continue
  • Hospitality venues must close at 10pm
  • Customers in indoor hospitality venues have to wear face coverings, except when seated at a table to eat or drink
  • Office workers should work from home if possible
  • The planned return of spectators to sports venues will not go ahead from October 1
  • Exemptions to the ‘rule of six’ will be cut back; this means indoor team sports such as five-a-side football matches won’t be possible from 1 October
  • Wedding attendance will be reduced to 15 people from 28 September
  • Penalties for not wearing a mask or gathering in groups of more than six will increase to £200 on the first offence
