With the rise of Coronavirus cases in England Boris Johnson has confirmed that all social gatherings will be reduced to a maximum of 6 as from Monday.

Full details will be confirmed by downing street later on today, but for now we do know that the ‘safe six’ rule doesn’t apply to the following:

  • Controlled weddings 
  • Funerals
  • Schools
  • Places of work

We’re told it will apply to gatherings in all other indoor and outdoor areas, including your homes, bars and restaurants. 

Anyone who doesn’t comply can be fined £100 for the offence.

This is to commence as from Monday 14th September 2020, at the moment in England only.
