Where we stand on the upcoming tier system has been revealed this morning.
Hertfordshire has been placed in Tier Two, on high alert, following a gradual climb in positive coronavirus cases.
This means, following the end of the national lockdown on December 2:
• People from different households must not mix indoors, except for support bubbles.
• Pubs and bars to close, unless they operate as restaurants. Hospitality venues can only serve alcohol with “substantial meals”.
You may also want to watch:
• Places of worship still open, but interacting with anyone outside of your household is not permitted.
• Crowds can attend socially distanced indoor and outdoor events, with up to 2,000 allowed for outdoor venues and 1,000 for indoor venues.
