The legal limit for social gatherings will be reduced from 30 to six.
This will apply to gatherings inside and outside the home – including private homes as well as parks, pubs and restaurants.
Health Secretary Matt Hancock said he hoped the ban could be lifted by Christmas.
He told BBC Radio 4 today: “This is the very near future. I really hope we can turn this goal around before Christmas.
“I think Christmas is far from an epidemic.”
The EU stressed that the people should abide by the new rules on social distance, despite the government’s goodwill to violate international law on the EU withdrawal agreement.
He told LBC: “Obviously we are committed to providing Brexit at the end of the transition process with the EU. Good work is going on. I am very optimistic and hope that we will reach an agreement.”
“We are putting the peace process first in Northern Ireland and I think everyone needs to understand why we decided to do it.”

Exemptions also apply to weddings, funerals and team sports organized in a coveted-safe way.
Although the bans were not as severe as they were from March to June, Mr Hancock refused to hang the second lock, despite assurances from the prime minister.
Speaking to LBC, he said: “I do not make such vows.
“You don’t expect me – I’m the health secretary in the midst of an epidemic, where we’re trying to keep the country safe.”
He added, however, that he could avoid the “optimistic” lockdown, saying: “The number of cases is largely driven by the socialization of the people.”
Robert Peston, political editor at ITV News, explains what he learned from the government’s latest coronavirus system.
Mr Johnson is expected to say at the press conference: “We need to work now to stop the spread of the virus. So we are simplifying and enforcing social media rules – to make them easier to understand and to make policing more effective.”
“Absolutely need to be critical that people now follow these rules and remember the basics – washing your hands, rubbing your face, brushing, keeping away from others and taking a test if you have symptoms.”
His press conference comes a day after England’s deputy chief medical officer warned of an “extremely worrying” increase in coronavirus cases.
Professor Jonathan Van-Tam says the recent festival has been a “big change” and a “relief in the summer” after the outlook.
He added that if the UK did not get its case number under control, the country could “continue to move uninterrupted for the next few months”.
Mr Van Tam said: “It’s a big change, it’s been consistent for two days now and it’s very worrying at the moment.
“I think you know we’ve been able to relax a bit in the summer, the level of the disease in the UK was really much lower in the summer but these latest figures really show us that people like to say ‘oh it’s gone’,” he said. It doesn’t go away. ‘
Mr. Van-Tam’s warning mirrors a member of the Scientific Advisory Group for Emergency (SAJ) who on Tuesday ITV News’ political editor told Robert Peston that the number of cases was “increasing rapidly”.“
Professor John Edmunds warned that the number in England was already above 1 and could worsen as schools and universities reopened nationwide.
He said the UK was facing serious challenges in controlling the virus in the autumn.
Professor Edmunds added: “The epidemic continues to grow and then we have Christmas. And what is this very difficult Christmas?”
“Well it’s been a very close meeting with your family. Restaurants and pubs and stuff like that And and it’s all high risk. And it’s all indoors ind.
He continued: “We are lucky with the weather – and it has turned out”.
Downing Street said Chief Medical Officer Professor Chris Whitty, Chief Scientific Adviser Sir Patrick Valence and the government have jointly agreed that urgent action is needed following the emergence of the coronavirus case.
As many as 2,420 tested cases of the coronavirus were recorded in Britain as of 9am on Tuesday, the highest daily number since the girl was reported in the UK on Sunday after 2,97.
The government hopes the change in the law will make it easier for police to identify and spread illegal gatherings. Failure to comply could result in a 100 fine, doubling to double 3,200 for each recurring offense.
Number ten states that Mr Johnson held a virtual roundtable with police last week where officers expressed their desire for rules to facilitate social communication.
