Coronavirus (COVID-19)

Latest information on the new coronavirus restrictions

The Government has announced a 4 week lockdown for England from Thursday 5 November 2020 until Wednesday 2 December 2020 and so the National Covid Tier system has been replaced by a National Lockdown.

You must not meet socially indoors with family or friends unless they are part of your household, meaning the people you live with - or support bubble.

This means you must not leave or be outside of your home except:

  • for childcare or education, where this is not provided online
  • for work purposes, where your place of work remains open and where you cannot work from home
  • to exercise outdoors or visit an outdoor public place, with the people you live with, with your support bubble or, when on your own, with 1 person from another household
  • for any medical concerns, reasons, appointments and emergencies, or to avoid or escape risk of injury or harm, such as domestic abuse
  • shopping for basic necessities, for example food and medicine to visit members of your support bubble or provide care for vulnerable people, or as a volunteer
