The details on tier 1, tier 2 and tier 3 local lockdown levels have been announced by Prime Minister Boris Johnson.

Boris Johnson said there will be a four-week “sunset clause” for interventions in very high areas.

He said: “We will also keep these measures under constant review, including a four-week sunset clause for interventions in very high areas.

“A postcode search on Gov.UK as well as the NHS Covid-19 app will show which local alert level applies in each area and we’re also publishing updated guidance to explain what the Covid alert levels mean for those who are clinically extremely vulnerable.

“And while these levels specifically apply to England, we continue to work closely with the devolved administrations to tackle this virus across the whole United Kingdom.”

There will be a ban on meeting people from other households both indoors and in most outdoor settings in tier 3.

This includes private gardens, beer gardens or any ticketed venue.

However, people can still meet in public outdoor settings such as a park.

Pubs and bars will be closed – but not restaurants.

And pubs will be able to stay open if they start operating like a restaurant, which means they only sell drinks with a meal.

People will be strongly advised not to travel into or out of a “very high” tier area.

However, this will only be guidance, and will not be enforced by law.

On top of this, local councils will be invited to add extra restrictions if they wish.

This could include closing other sectors of the economy like gyms or casinos.

Closing:

Pubs and bars

Gyms

leisure centres

betting shops

other businesses will also close.

Remaining open:

Retail, school and universities to remain open.

Restaurants will too.
