Updated COVID Restrictions

Due to the COVID alert rising to Level 4 this week, the Prime Minister has introduced some new measures which include:

  • Work from home wherever possible: Office workers who can work effectively from home should do so over the winter. If you cannot work from home, you should go to your place of work. The risk of transmission can be substantially reduced if COVID-19 secure guidelines are followed closely. Extra consideration should be given to those people at higher risk.
  • Hospitality: All pubs, bars and restaurants are now table service only and must close at 10pm. This will include takeaways but delivery services can continue after 10pm.
  • Businesses: All businesses need to display the official NHS QR code posters so that customers can ‘check-in’ at different premises using this option as an alternative to providing their contact details once the app is rolled out nationally. Businesses must remind people to wear face coverings. In retail, leisure, tourism and other sectors, the guidelines will become law. Businesses will be fined and possibly closed if they breach rules.
  • Face coverings: You need to wear a face covering if you work in retail, in taxis and private hire vehicles, everyone within indoor hospitality, except when eating or drinking.
  • Gatherings: From Monday (28 September) only 15 people can attend weddings and civil partnerships. Funerals remain at 30 people. Indoor sports can only be in groups of less than six - from Monday.
  • Penalties: The penalty for not wearing a mask or for gathering in more than six people will rise to £200 for the first offence.
  • Shielding: Shielding is not currently required, but the government is keeping this under constant review.

What is new can be found here on the government's website.
