Staffordshire Residents Urged To Stick To New Rule of Six

Staffordshire residents are being reminded it will be illegal from today (Monday) for most people to meet indoors or outdoors in groups of more than six.

The new “Rule of Six” law aims to bolster national efforts to contain the spread of the virus and anybody caught flouting risks a fine of £100, rising to £3,200 for repeat offences.

The new laws from today mean:

·         You are not allowed to meet socially in groups of more than six either indoors or outdoors

·         Police have the powers to give on the spot fines of £100, doubling for further breaches up to a maximum of £3,200

·         People whose household is larger than six can socialise together, but not with anyone else if everyone is present

·         Where there is only one adult in the household they can continue to meeting with one other household of any size, known as a support bubble

More information on the new laws and exemptions can be found on the Government’s Frequently Asked Questions page.
