Offences & Powers Relating to Businesses, Events, Gatherings and Movements of People During Covid-19 A Further Update

Further to his previous notes on the regulations imposed by the government to deal with the Coronavirus Pandemic, Philip Stott has updated his briefing on the Healthcare Protection Regulations to take account of the enactment of the Health Protection (Coronavirus, Restrictions) (England) (Amendment) (No. 4) Regulations 2020 (SI 2020/588) which came into force in two tranches on 13 and 15 June 2020.
In addition to the overarching restrictions placed upon the general population since the outbreak of the pandemic, the Secretary of State for Health has now also utilised his powers under ss.45B, 45F(2) and 45P(2) of the Public Health (Control of Diseases) Act 1984 to enact the Health Protection (Coronavirus, International Travel) (England) Regulations 2020 (SI 2020/578).  Philip considers the applications, impact and exemptions in the second briefing note.
Both notes are recommended reading for all those who wish to stay up to date with the current state of the law in this area.
