Leicester residents could be fined up to £ 3,200 for violation of new blockade laws World news

The government has released its local blocking rules for Leicester, which will see most companies close their doors again.

The new regulations, published on Friday afternoon, come into effect on Saturday, when pubs, restaurants and hairdressers can open in the rest of England. Anyone breaking the rules in Leicester could be fined £ 100, which will double each time they break the law and could reach up to £ 3,200 for the sixth and subsequent crimes.

The city was subjected to more severe restrictions by health secretary, Matt Hancock, following a wave of coronavirus cases. In addition to the city of Leicester, the affected area includes parts of Leicestershire which touch the city limits, including parts of Blaby and Charnwood.

The rules stipulate that restaurants, cafes, bars and pubs must remain closed, but they can remain open for takeaways. Exceptions are made to the rules for cafes and canteens in hospitals, nursing homes, prisons and military bases, which can all remain open.

Other non-essential activities, such as cinemas, theaters, night clubs, museums, gyms, beauty salons and hairdressers, must remain closed unless they host blood donations. Gyms, gyms, sports fields and indoor or outdoor pools can be used to train elite athletes.

Companies that can remain open include supermarkets, licenses, pharmacies, banks, home improvement stores, post offices and garden centers. The list also extends to outdoor markets and outdoor sports fields.

Hotels and bed and breakfasts must remain closed unless guests are able to return home, are critical workers, or need accommodation during the move or to attend a funeral.

Places of worship must also close, except for funerals, voluntary services such as food banks and private prayers from individuals. People can meet outdoors in groups of no more than six, as long as they respect the rules of social estrangement.

People are also forbidden to stay in another family and are not allowed to visit others in their gardens or indoors.

The rules must be reviewed every two weeks, with the first revision scheduled for July 18.
