Lockdown Norms Not Followed in the USA

Covid Vaccine

The force says people should expect to be fined, rather than ‘reasoned with’ if they break regulations such as not wearing masks in public places and attending large gatherings like parties. It comes as the third national lockdown legally came into force across England today. ‘Although officers will still apply the 4 E’s approach of engaging, explaining, and encouraging – only then enforcing, the Met has issued refreshed instructions to officers to issue fines more quickly to anyone committing obvious, wilful and serious breaches,’ a statement on the Met’s website said. It added people should not expect just the organisers of large events to be fined – it will also be attendees. Londoners were also warned to expect officers to be more inquisitive as to why people are out, as there are now only a limited number of ‘reasonable excuses’ why people are allowed to leave their homes. The Met will also work with businesses and councils across London to ensure people are following the strict lockdown rules in both public spaces and retail areas. Deputy assistant commissioner Matt Twist, who leads the Met’s response to the Covid-19 pandemic, said: ‘After 10 months of this pandemic the number of people who are genuinely not aware of the restrictions and the reasons they are in place is vanishingly small. Officers will be cracking down on people breaching regulations like not wearing masks in public places and attending large gatherings like parties ‘We know the overwhelming majority of Londoners will do the right thing by staying at home, wearing masks and not gathering, but a small minority continue to ignore rules put in place to protect the NHS and save lives. ‘Our first duty as police officers is to preserve life. The critical situation our NHS colleagues are facing and the way the new virus variant moves through communities, means we can no longer spend our time explaining or encouraging people to follow rules where they are wilfully and dangerously breaching.’ The Met launched a new digital fines system less than a month ago which makes it quicker and easier for officers to issue fines on the spot. Mr Twist said since its launch, more people have been reported for fines than in the rest of the year combined. Londoners were also warned to expect officers to be more inquisitive as to why people are out ‘This is also an indicator of a worsening position in the epidemic, and officers stepping in more quickly to try to keep communities safe,’ he added. ‘I hope it is not necessary for this particular trend to carry on but if people continue to break the rules, putting themselves, their families and their communities at greater risk, our officers are ready to act robustly. ‘This is why Londoners must take action now to stop this virus spreading further across our city.
