How do you police that?

Having sex in your own home with someone from a different household is illegal from today, after the government altered its coronavirus legislation.
At 11.30am on Monday, a change to the law was introduced that bans two people from different households in England gathering in an indoor, private place during the coronavirus lockdown.
The amendment to the Health Protection (Coronavirus, Restrictions) Bill states: “No person may participate in a gathering which takes place in a public or private place indoors, and consists of two or more persons.”
Previously, going to another person’s home to have sex would have been a breach of coronavirus lockdown restrictions, but now both parties could be prosecuted under the law. Having sex in public is already illegal.
Only those with a “reasonable excuse” are permitted to meet in a private place.
I wonder if a reasonable excuse includes “I was really horny and my wife kept telling me no?”
This makes perfect sense of course, though it does seem a little overly Big Brother-ish.
And what about people who are dating but not currently living together?
Still, what a great way to keep that straying spouse in line:
“I swear if you see that harlot again I will have you both arrested!”
