New rules on meeting to be enforced with £100 fine from Monday 14 September

There are currently a growing number of positive COVID-19 cases in Barnet, particularly among young people. It is important we remain cautious and follow the guidance around meeting and socialising to Keep Barnet Safe.

The guidance on meeting has now been updated by the government and social gatherings of more than six people, indoors and outdoors, will be illegal in England from Monday 14 September. This will be enforced through a £100 fine if people fail to comply, doubling on each offence up to a maximum £3,200. This will not apply to schools, workplaces or COVID-secure weddings, funerals and team sports (further information can be found here and we expect it to be updated by the government on Monday to reflect the new rules).


Please do not put yourself and others at risk by attending or hosting larger parties or gatherings. And, it’s vital that if you have come into close contact with someone who has been infected you should self-isolate immediately for 14 days. If you develop symptoms, book a test.
