Short Update: New restrictions introduced in the UK as lockdown is eased

FT Admin - June 2, 2020 - COVID-19 Updates, New criminal offences

A new law banning overnight stays at someone else’s home has entered into force in England as other COVID-19 restrictions are being eased. Police will now be allowed to fine and arrest people for non-compliance but will not have the power to forcibly remove them from the premises.

Holding indoors gatherings of two or more people, or more than six people outdoors, are also now considered crimes and are punishable by fine. In Wales and Scotland, people from two different households are only allowed to meet outdoors, while in Northern Ireland six people from different households are allowed to meet outdoors.
