Just days after Prime Minister Boris Johnson confirmed the UK will return to a tiered system of restrictions next week, the government have now revealed which tiers each region will move into after lockdown.
The full list of areas and their tiers were published this morning (November 26) by the government.
From December 2, London and Liverpool will go into Tier 2, while Birmingham and Manchester will be placed in Tier 3.
In tier 1, people will be urged to work from home where possible. In tier 2, bars and restaurants will only be able to sell alcohol if served with a meal. Also in tiers 1 and 2, bars and restaurants will be able to open until 11pm, with last call for orders being at 10pm.
In tier 3, indoor entertainment, hotels and all forms of hospitality will close except for takeaways. Mr Johnson also said we will see a “six-week surge of testing” in tier 3 areas.
In addition to allowing the opening of non-essential shops, gyms, leisure facilities and hairdressers next Wednesday (December 2), the PM also said a limited number of fans will be able to return to sports stadium in tiers 1 and 2.
