Public Gatherings of More Than 6 Banned From 14th September

Public Gatherings of More Than 6 Banned From 14th September

Social gatherings of more than six people will be illegal in England from Monday 14th September due to a steep rise in coronavirus cases. The limit will ban larger groups than 6 people meeting anywhere socially both indoors and outdoors.

However, the rules will not apply to schools, workplaces, weddings, funerals and organised team sports. The new rule will be enforced by a £100 fine. However, if people fail to comply with police this fine could be doubled up to a maximum of £3,200.

What Did The Government Say Previously

Boris Johnson said “We need to act now to stop the virus spreading. So we are simplifying and strengthening the rules on social contact – making them easier to understand and for the police to enforce. It is absolutely critical that people now abide by these rules and remember the basics – washing your hands, covering your face, keeping space from others, and getting a test if you have symptoms.”

What are the new rules?

  • Social gatherings of more than six people in England will not be allowed in law from Monday 14 September
  • The new rule applies to private homes, indoors and outdoors, and places such as bars and cafes
  • The rule does not apply to schools and workplaces, or weddings, funerals and organised team sports
  • A full list of exemptions is due to be published before the law changes
  • People who ignore police could be fined £100 – doubling with each offence to a maximum of £3,200

The change applies to England only, to people of all ages, and to gatherings indoors and outdoors, in private homes, public outdoor spaces, and venues such as pubs and restaurants. The rise in cases seen in recent days has caused alarm among ministers and their health advisers. In addition, the government believe that the UK is at a critical point ahead of the onset of autumn and winter when respiratory viruses tend to thrive.
