New Covid-19 restrictions to come into force

With recent spikes in Coronavirus and local lockdowns in places in some parts of the country, the Government have announced new measures on social gatherings anywhere socially indoors or outdoors will come into force in England on 14 September 2020.

Ahead of new guidance to be issued, it is reported that social gatherings of more than six people will be illegal in England from Monday (with some exemptions). We will be updating our Practice Briefing No1 once we have seen and digest the new rules and reviewed how they will apply to homes, including those in specialist and supported housing.
