Tougher Restrictions for London & the South as Tier 4 restrictions are Imposed

It feels like Christmas for many in London and the South East is cancelled as the PM Boris Johnson announced tough new restrictions and social distancing measures for London and nearby areas on Saturday in an attempt to slow the spread of a new, highly transmissible variant of the coronavirus.

NEW TIER 4

– London and parts of the south east and east of England currently in the highest Tier 3 category will enter a new Tier 4 level of restrictions, roughly equivalent to England’s lockdown in November.

– Residents in Tier 4 areas must stay at home, apart from limited exemptions.

– Non-essential retail, indoor gyms and leisure facilities, and personal care services must close.

– People must work from home if possible, but may travel to work if necessary, for example in construction and manufacturing.

– People should not enter or leave Tier 4 areas and residents must not stay overnight away from home.

– Individuals can only meet one person from another household in an outdoor public space.

– Communal worship can continue to take place.

– The measures will take effect from Sunday morning.

– A next formal review of the tiers system is due to take place on Dec. 30.
