PUBLIC INFORMATION PAGES FROM CAMDEN COUNCIL

The Government has announced new restrictions to curb the rise in coronavirus cases across the country.

These include:

Work: People should work from home wherever possible.

Restricted hours: From today (Thursday 24 September), restaurants, pubs and bars must close at 10pm – they will also be restricted to table service only.

Face coverings: By law, you must now wear a face covering if you are travelling in a taxi or visiting a restaurant, pub or bar, except when seated at a table to eat or drink. Staff in the retail, leisure and hospitality industries must wear face coverings where they are likely to come in close contact with the public. Fines for not wearing one have been increased to £200 for the first offence. To request a free print or digital exemption badge, search ‘face covering exemption’ at gov.uk

Weddings: The maximum number of guests will be reduced from 30 to 15 from Monday (28 September).

Public sporting events: Plans to allow fans to return are paused.

‘Rule of six’: As of Monday (28 September), socialising in a group of no more than 6 also applies to indoor team sports for over 18s.
