New Social Distancing rules will be applied on Monday 14 September stating that no more than six people can meet. A law change will ban larger groups meeting anywhere socially indoors or outdoors, the government said. But it will not apply to schools, workplaces or Covid-secure weddings, funerals and organised team sports. It will be enforced through a £100 fine if people fail to comply, doubling on each offence up to a maximum of £3,200.

What are the new rules?

  • From next Monday, any gathering of more than six people in England will be illegal, unless it meets one of a limited list of exemptions
  • This applies to gatherings both indoors and outdoors
  • The new rule does not apply to households or bubbles of more than six, or gatherings for work or education
  • Weddings, funerals, and organised team sports carried out in a COVID-secure way are also exempt
  • People will at first be fined £100, but this will double on each further repeat offence up to £3,200

The full list of exemptions will be revealed by the government before the law changes on Monday.
