What You Need To Know
On 2 December, England will move back into a regional, tiered approach, where different tiers of restrictions apply in different parts of the country. The government will announce which areas are in which tier on Thursday 26 November.
There are 3 tiers for local restrictions:
- Tier 1: Medium alert
- Tier 2: High alert
- Tier 3: Very High alert
On 2 December, across all of England, regardless of tier:
- the stay at home requirement will end, with travel being permitted again subject to guidance in each tier
- shops, personal care, gyms and the wider leisure sector will reopen
- collective worship, weddings and outdoor sports can resume
- people will no longer be limited to seeing only one other person in outdoor public spaces – the rule of 6 will now apply outdoors as it did in the previous set of tiers
A summary of each of the tiers is below.
