The government has enforced a "no talking" rule at music venues

The government has enacted a "no talking" rule to stop the spread of COVID-19 at music venues. This step will reduce the likelihood of transmission of the virus by music lovers when they speak loudly and stand very close to each other. Groups of friends will be encouraged to use WhatsApp to communicate, and a traffic light system will be introduced for ordering drinks at the bar, which government officials have already dubbed "Morse cocktails."

The rule goes into effect on June 21, when music venues can be reopened.

Talkers can pay fines of up to £ 1,000!

The precautions will be combined with other measures, such as rapid testing and temperature checks, to help keep nightclubs and other venues open safely.
