Meanwhile the Government has made it illegal to “mingle” under the new law enabling the enforcement of the “rule of six” in England.
Changes to regulations in England were published late on Sunday night, around 30 minutes before they came into force.
People face fines of £100, doubling to a maximum of £3,200 for repeat offences, for breaching the law, which bans social gatherings of more than six people both indoors and outdoors.
But the legislation could prove difficult to enforce, with a list of exceptions allowing for larger gatherings at places including education and work settings.
Venues like places of worship, gyms, restaurants and hospitality settings can still hold more than six in total, while weddings and funerals can still go ahead with a limit of 30 people.
