You can keep up to date with all Government releases and the latest information on Coronavirus on the Gov.uk website.

Theses tiers have been updated so please read the information relating to your tier carefully.

here are 3 tiers for local restrictions:

When will we know our tier?

On Thursday 26 November the government will announce which areas are in which tier. You will be able to use the postcode checker to find out the restrictions in your area or an area you plan to visit. The NHS COVID-19 app will be updated on 2 December.

The new rules will come into effect from the beginning of Wednesday 2 December.

There is separate guidance for households with a possible or confirmed coronavirus infection and additional advice at each tier will be provided shortly for people who are clinically extremely vulnerable to coronavirus.

There is also separate guidance for support and childcare bubbles, which apply across all tiers.

Support bubbles have been expanded. From 2 December you can form a support bubble with another household if any of the following apply to you:

  • you are the only adult in your household (any other members of the household having been under 18 on 12 June 2020) or are the only adult who does not have a disability that needs continuous care
  • you have a child under 1
  • you live with a child under 5 with a disability that needs continuous care

The government will announce the arrangements that will be in place over the Christmas period shortly.

We must all still:

  • wear a face covering in most indoor public settings, unless they have an exemption
  • follow the rules on meeting others safely
  • attend school or college as normal, unless they are self-isolating. Schools, universities, colleges and early years settings remain open in all tiers
  •  walk or cycle where possible, plan ahead and avoid busy times and routes when travelling
  • follow the gathering limits at their tier except for in specific settings and circumstances. These exemptions are detailed at the end of this guidance
