However, the new rule change has led to speculation about what it could mean for supermarket shoppers.
The strict rules were announced last week by Prime Minister Boris Johnson as the number of Covid-19 infections rise.
Here are the latest rules for Asda, Tesco, Lidl, Sainsbury’s and Aldi as the government’s tough restrictions come into play today, September 14
But supermarkets have been quick to pressure customers that the government rule change will not have a major impact.
Today, September 14, tougher coronavirus restrictions come into play in a bid to limit the spread of the virus.
New limits are also coming into force in Scotland and Wales.
The new rule change means that groups of more than six people will be banned in England.
For example, many wonder if the new rule changes mean you will be forced to enter a long queue for your supermarket again, reports Daily Mirror.
But from today groups of more than six people in a supermarket can be slapped with a £100 fine, which doubles upon each offence up to £3,200.
But most supermarkets encourage just one person from each household to enter a shop anyway.
But if you’re still confused about the rules, here are all the latest guidelines from the supermarkets.
Most supermarkets encourage customers to do this, but aren’t policing it as someone might have a good reason not to wear one.
It is also still government advice to wear a face mask when shopping in supermarkets.
Asda encourages customers to stay two metres apart while shopping, as well as wearing face coverings.
A spokesperson from the supermarket chain said: “Throughout the pandemic our customers have embraced many new rules to keep everyone safe in our stores, and we are confident they will continue to show care and consideration for each other by wearing a face covering when they visit our stores.”
“While we will do all we can to strongly encourage customers to respect the new guidelines, the responsibility for policing and enforcing them does lie with the relevant authorities.”
The statement continued: “We also have signs at the entrance to the store and on the shelf edges to encourage customers to wear a face covering and are using Asda FM (our in-store radio) to further remind customers.
