    That's within the rules as long as you don't start swapping tables.

    You really should not socialise between tables but many places will allow that(some ignore table swapping)

    Some places are clamping down as they have issues with larger groups arriving in smaller groups but mixing once inside.

    Now there are fines yet to see if any enforcement will take place.

    We had the police check our local on Monday to see if there were any issues at the weekend.

      I read today that a rule breaker is believed to be partly responsible for the spike in Bolton. He failed to quarantine on return from holiday, and instead went on a pub crawl, was tested positive two days later, and following that a number of cases were traced to the pub he'd visited. I trust he has been fined. I'd also plaster his photo all over Bolton to name and shame him.

        I heard that on the lunchtime news. What a plonker....and worse! They also showed groups of youngsters enjoying some nightlife in Newcastle.....no social distancing and groups greater than six!

        Why on earth haven’t they made it compulsory to wear face coverings/masks in busy town/city outdoor areas, as this would at least offset the lack of social distancing?

          Because they'd ignore that as well...

            They shouldn't be allowed to ignore it.....big brother is watching! 👀 👀

            Face masks are a powerful weapon in the Government's armoury and yet they are failing to make the most of it.

            And.......it doesn’t cost them a penny!

              Have you come across ''mask envy'' yet?

              I look at masks and sometimes think, I want one of those!!

              I have what could be termed now, a wardrobe of masks and sadly, the most expensive ones, are the prettiest and best constructed. I do fancy a child's animal face mask but can't find a good one, in adult size!

                I was travelling home on a train on Thursday. My seat was opposite a poster stating that those found not wearing a face covering on the train, would be subject to a £ 100 fine.

                For most of my journey, I had the carriage almost to myself so sat there wearing my face mask and enjoying the scenery. However, at the stop before mine, a crowd of Secondary school kids boarded the train, many of whom were not wearing a face covering and some only covering their mouths but not noses.

                The children then proceeded to move up and down the train between carriages in order to interact with of find their mates.
                I couldn't help wondering where the guard was. These kids board the train at the same time every day, so the guards should be keeping an eye out to ensure that they behave and follow the rules, which they clearly weren't.
                I was very glad to get off that train.

                  I once saw some time back Nichola Sturgeon wearing a shaped fabric plaid mask which fitted very well and looked smart. The patterned fabric masks look very feminine and I also saw that Boots were selling some designer ones...at a price.

                  I got a couple of packs of the bog standard blue pleated ones from Sainsbury’s, they started at a pack of 10 for £8, the some weeks later reduced it to a fiver. I tried the candle test that JC suggested and they worked very well. I also bought some individual shaped masks from Superdrug, as OH fancied a black one. I bought pink! Lol

                  I also bought a kids Dinosaur patterned mask in Superdrug, my grandson loves it. 🦕 🦖

                    My Amaia ones are superb. I save them for close contact occasions though. My others are good enough for shopping etc.

                        What level of fine??

                        I can think of more appropriate punishments.

                        We may be heading for a ban on air travel??

                          I think there's a £1000 fine for those returning from abroad who fail to quarantine. It seems his identity is known so no reason why he shouldn't be made to pay.

                            Ok I'll have that and the equivalent of 2 weeks community service in a care home. By my calculation - 335 hours??

                            There are far too many recorded incidences of people not quarantining.

                            Or better still, follow the IoM example of 8 weeks in prison.

                              Agreed. A family of four in our town returned from France and were seen out and about in local shops immediately on their return. Fortunately, no outbreak here, but there could have been.

                                Well we have not been so lucky. Glasgow has had an incident similar to that of Bolton. As we say up here 'it does my heid in' ! If we don't get our act together, we will wearing masks next summer. Rant over.
