Transgressers are arrested, and almost always given a short, sharp jail sentence - 4 weeks, or 6 weeks, or 8 weeks for the worst cases.
Those breaking rules have to be punished.

It can done.

Wouldn't work in England. Prisons bulging. Courts have backlogs of cases which might take more than a year to get through. Some remand prisoners are potentially spending longer in custody than the typical prison sentence they would get if convicted. Young people (under 18) on remand spending up to 23 hours in solitary confinement. On the plus side, only a couple of dozen prisoners have died of Covid-19 and not the thousands of deaths which had been feared at the outset.

It's no wonder that courts are under pressure because 157 courts were closed down in 2010, including our very busy local court building.

The magistrates court in my nearest large town is using some areas of a nearby hotel in addition to the court building so they can catch up with the cases that were backlogged during the first lockdown. They're using Jury's Inn. I kid you not!  :D

Maiden Stone, if interested there are various and also some Scottish Notices & Laws here ...

Noticed them while I was looking for historic surname notices relating to Yorkshire.

Good site to check historic family names, especially if a formal notice e.g. Probate (requiring a Notice) or similar was published, the Gazette began in 1665.

Thanks. A handy list. I look at Gov.uk and Scotgov.uk and public health websites but there's so much on them, constantly updated.
A lot of entries in the Gazette for one ancestral line, many of whom owned businesses which were liquidated. I was able to trace lives and careers of 4 elder brothers of a 3xGGF that way.

"Nightingale courts" include a theatre and a cinema.
