Anyone found guilty of violating lockdown rules will face heavy fines when England enters a second national lockdown.
As of Thursday November 5th, the new coronavirus rules and laws could impose fines of up to £ 6,400 for repeated violations.
By early December, England’s three tier system of stricter national lockdown will be suspended to curb the spread of Covid-19.
Non-essential stores will be closed for around four weeks, but schools and universities will remain open unlike the previous lockdown in March. Chronicle Live Reports.
Mixing households indoors is for the most part strictly prohibited, but the bladder system remains in place and you may meet others in certain circumstances – for example, outdoors.
Here is a full list of the reasons you should be following the new England coronavirus lockdown rules imposed by the Daily Star Online.
Meet family and friends indoors or in a private garden
As of Thursday, it is illegal to meet someone who is not in your household in a private yard or indoors.
Households shouldn’t mingle indoors or in the garden unless they’re part of your support bubble.
In a support bubble, a single adult household joins another household of any size.
Fines for anyone breaking house shuffling rules start from £ 200.
Meeting with more than one person in a public space
You can still meet someone from another household to play sports or go to an outdoor public place.
Children under school age and children who are looked after around the clock and are with their parents do not count towards this limit.
Outdoor locations include parks, beaches, landscapes, public gardens, and playgrounds.
Anyone breaking this rule will be punished with a fine of £ 200 for the first offense, which doubles for further offenses to a maximum of £ 6,400.
The fines for organizing large gatherings are much higher.
Stay in a second holiday home
Those in England were ordered to stay at home except for a limited number of reasons.
This means that overnight stays and vacations outside of your main residence are not permitted.
There are exceptions, for example when you need to stay away for certain purposes.
If you are asked to self-isolate, share a household or support bubble with someone with coronavirus symptoms, or are asked to do so by the NHS Test and Trace because of coronavirus symptoms, you must do so.
Those leaving someone else’s life in danger could face a £ 4,000 fine.
You could also be fined £ 1,000 if you tested positive and provided incorrect information about your close relationships with NHS Test and Trace.
Penalties also apply to those who are not quarantined for 14 days after returning from a country on the UK quarantine list.
During the statewide lockdown, people should only travel for essential reasons, such as work.
Do not wear face covering
Brits are asked to wear face covering in environments where it is not always possible to maintain a social distance of two meters.
For example, those visiting major retailers like supermarkets should wear one unless otherwise exempted.
If you have to use public transport, for example for work, you should also wear a face mask.
You should also wear one in an environment where you meet people you “normally wouldn’t” meet.
The fines start at £ 200 and double for each offense.
Companies that shouldn’t be open
Businesses ordered to close due to national restrictions can be fined up to £ 10,000.
The government has ordered the closure of all non-essential retail, indoor and outdoor leisure, entertainment and personal care facilities.
Grocery stores, supermarkets, garden centers, and certain other retailers selling essential goods may remain open.
