Boris Johnson has announced new measures to combat the rise of COVID-19 cases across the UK.


Here are the key points, which will come into force in England in the next week, from the Prime Minister’s statement to the House of Commons.

– Office workers who can work from home should do so.

– Pubs, bars and restaurants in England will be ordered to close by 10pm each night.

– The hospitality sector will be restricted to table service only.

– Face coverings must be worn in taxis and private hire vehicles, and by retail staff while at work.

– Customers in indoor hospitality will also have to wear face coverings – except while seated at a table to eat or drink.

– The exemptions to the rule of six will be reduced, banning indoor team sport – such as indoor five-a-side football matches.

– The planned return of spectators to sports venues will now not go ahead from October 1.

– Wedding ceremonies and receptions will be capped at 15 people from Monday.
