New set of rules set out by Boris Johnson

On Wednesday (September 9), Prime Minister Boris Johnson hunveiled the new set of rules and regulations across England to tackle a spike in coronavirus cases.

During a press conference, the Prime Minister said: “In England from Monday (September 14) we are introducing the rule of six.

“You must not meet socially in groups of more than six.

“And, if you do, you will be breaking the law.”

Regarding the six people rule, the Prime Minister said: “This will apply in any setting, indoors or outdoors, at home or in the pub.

“The ban will be set out in law and it will be enforced by the police – anyone breaking the rules risks being dispersed, fined and possibly arrested.

“This single measure replaces both the existing ban on gatherings of more than 30 and the current guidance on allowing two households to meet indoors. Now you only need to remember the rule of six.”

Boris Johnson also said he is “sorry” that two whole households will no longer be able to meet if their total exceeds six people.

He said: “This rule of six will of course throw up difficult cases, for example two whole households will no longer be able to meet if they would together exceed the limit of six people and I’m sorry about that, and I wish that we did not have to take this step.

“But as your Prime Minister, I must do what is necessary to stop the spread of the virus and to save lives. And of course we will keep the rule of six under constant review and only keep it in place as long as is necessary.”

Mr Johnson said that he has tasked the Cabinet with increasing enforcement of the rules, adding: “In future, premises where people meet socially will be legally required to request the contact details of a member of every party, record and retain these details for 21 days and provide them to NHS Test and Trace, without delay, when required.”
