LONDON—British Prime Minister Boris Johnson announced a series of new coronavirus restrictions for England, including earlier pub closing times, as his government tries to quell a second wave of infections while avoiding another economically damaging nationwide lockdown.

In an address to Parliament, Mr. Johnson announced both tightening and tougher enforcement of social-distancing rules, with fines of up to 10,000 pounds, equivalent to $12,800, for businesses that fail to adhere to them.
