Given the high levels of compliance we have seen to our Covid-19 measures to date, we would hope that the majority of people would do the right thing and abide by these measures. Enforcement would only be used as a last resort.

However, anyone who fails to comply with the mandatory conditions could face enforcement action, including a fixed penalty notice or potential prosecution and a substantial fine.

We will set out further detail shortly.
