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.
