Mr Johnson stressed the need to respect the restrictions or else we must see thousands of people getting sick on a daily basis.
Anyone who does not follow the rules is subject to much higher fines.
The new rules include a 10 p.m. curfew for all pubs, bars and restaurants, as well as a £ 10,000 fine for those who ignore the rules.
For all stores in England, it was mandatory for shoppers to wear face masks – minus the legitimate exclusion list.
However, now this rule will extend to all retail employees, who must wear a mask while working.
In his speech, Mr Johnson said: ‘We will expand the requirement to wear masks to include retail staff, all users of taxis and private rental vehicles and staff and customers of the indoor accommodation, except when seated at a table to eat or drink. . ”
It’s essential that stores maintain safe environments to stay open, which means they keep numbers low and ensure social distancing.
It will be up to the police, the councils and even the military to enforce the rules.

For those who had planned a wedding, they now face a ceiling of 15 people. For funerals, the number of attendance will remain at 30.
There’s also a new £ 200 fine for anyone ignoring the ‘rule of six’ – or not wearing a face mask in areas where they should.
There has been no announcement of a two-week nationwide “circuit breaker” lockdown, and schools, colleges and universities will remain open.
He added: “In retail, leisure and tourism and other sectors, our Covid-secure guidelines will become legal obligations. “
