North Warwickshire will be in Tier 4 Stay At Home from tomorrow, 31st December. You must not leave or be outside of your home except for specific purposes.

The Tier 4 restrictions below were correct at the time of publishing and sourced from https://www.gov.uk/government/news/formal-tiering-review-update-30-december-2020

This guidance is for people who are fit and well. There is additional advice for:

Tier 4 restrictions mean:

  • people must not leave their home or garden unless they have a ‘reasonable excuse’ including where reasonably necessary for work, education, exercise or open air recreation and essential activities such as medical appointments and to buy food
  • people must not meet socially indoors, in a private garden or most outdoor public venues with anybody they do not live with or have a support bubble with. Everyone who can work from home should do so
  • people can see only one other person that they do not live with (or do not have a support bubble with) in certain public outdoor places – such as parks, public gardens, or outdoor sports facilities
  • weddings and funerals can go ahead with restrictions on the number of attendees – 6 people can attend wedding ceremonies, wedding receptions are not allowed, 30 people can attend funeral ceremonies, 6 people can attend linked commemorative events
  • accommodation such as hotels, B&Bs, campsites, holiday lets and guest houses must close, other than where very limited exceptions apply
  • hospitality settings, such as bars (including shisha bars), pubs, cafes, restaurants, and social clubs must close except for takeaway, delivery, drive-through and click and collect services. Takeaway must cease between 11pm and 5am, but delivery, drive-through and click-and-collect may continue during this period. This includes restaurants and bars within hotels or members’ clubs
  • indoor entertainment venues, such as casinos, bowling alleys, and bingo halls must close. Cinemas, theatres, and concert venues must also close
  • certain outdoor venues, such as botanical gardens, heritage sites, and zoos and other animal attractions may stay open, although indoor elements at these attractions must also close
  • all indoor leisure and sports facilities must close except where a legal exemption exists, such as for the training of elite sports persons

See further details on Tier 4.

The government decides which tier applies in each area based on a range of indicators, including:

  • analysis of cases across all age groups
  • analysis of cases in the over-60s
  • the rate by which cases are rising or falling
  • the percentage of those tested in local populations with COVID-19
  • pressures on the NHS
