Due to the outbreak of the new coronavirus strain, UK has announced a lockdown possibly until mid-February to stop the virus from spreading. Personal care services including salons, spas and others have been closed. A report in Metro.co.uk quoted a spokesperson for the Metropolitan Police as saying, "Police were alerted at around 17:40hrs on Wednesday, 6 January to reports of a Covid breach taking place within a hairdressers on Lansdowne Mews, Notting Hill. Officers attended and the owner of the salon was given a verbal reminder of the important need to comply with all regulations regarding Covid-19 and signposted to other sources of advice. No fixed penalty notices were issued."

If further reports are to be believed, the actress or a salon owner did not have to pay the fine because they showed the documents containing the permission to open the salon privately for the film.
