POLICE will visit the homes of people who are self-isolating in a coronavirus crackdown as £10,000 fines come into force for rule breakers.
Those ordered to quarantine under new coronavirus rules beginning from today will be checked up on by door-knocking cops.
Home Secretary Priti Patel warned that ministers "will not allow those who break the rules to reverse the hard-won progress made by the law-abiding majority".
Cops will "check compliance" with the new rules, and £10,000 fines will be given out to those who do not self-isolate or employers who force staff to return to work.
Police will investigate claims that people are flouting self-isolation rules.
On Tuesday, Boris Johnson announced £10,000 fines for Brits who fail to isolate.
People can also be fined for flouting the recent 'Rule of Six' measures - or for breaking a mandatory rule on wearing face coverings in shops, which came into force on July 24.
All pubs, bars, restaurants and other hospitality venues across England must close at 10pm under curfew rules.
