Only three areas in Tier One as government publishes local lockdown Tier list

The government’s list of areas that will be in Tier One, Tier Two, and Tier Three has finally been revealed.

Prime Minister Boris Johnson unveiled the government’s winter plan on Monday, November 23, which involved going into a tiered system of restrictions when the national lockdown ends on December 2.

The tiered system will be similar to the one from October, but will be stricter, and more areas have been placed in Tiers One and Tier Two.

Ministers were expected to announce the full list of tiers for every part of England today, November 26.

Health Secretary Matt Hancock has listed the areas, but surprisingly only three areas will be in the lowest Tier One.

Which areas are in Tier One?

There are only three areas which will be in Tier One, or the medium alert level.

They are Cornwall, The Isle of Wight and the Isles of Scilly.

Mr Hancock said they have low case rates of coronavirus, and thanked those who live there for their efforts.

What are Tier One restrictions?

In Tier One areas, people must abide by the Rule of Six, when meeting other households both indoors and outdoors.

You should still work from home if you can do so.

Pubs and restaurants will be open, but last orders will be called out at 10pm, with customers allowed to stay until 11pm.

Spectators will be allowed to resume in both indoors and outdoors, with Covid-safe measures in place.

People in Tier One areas can also attend performances and shows in entertainment venues.

What are the rules for the other Tiers?

Across all tiers people must wear face coverings in specific areas, unless exempt and should walk or cycle where possible.

In Tier Two people must not socialise with people they don’t live with indoors – in private or a public place.

Outside people shouldn’t socialise in groups of more than six.

Businesses and venues can still continue to operate, but hospitality venues can only serve alcohol with “substantial meals”.

Meanwhile, those in Tier 3 shouldn’t meet socially indoors or outdoors with people they don’t live with – including private gardens.

People shouldn’t socialise in a group of more than six in public outdoor spaces, including parks and beaches.

Hospitality venues have to close, but are permitted to continue selling takeaways.
