Oops! Sorry, we had a technical glitch

We’re really sorry, but the version of our Covid-19 update sent earlier today didn’t include all the very latest updates. The gremlins in our system pulled in content from an older bulletin, which meant you may have received an incomplete version. Please find below all the correct information in advance of the new national restrictions coming into force tomorrow.

National lockdown

New national restrictions

At the weekend, the Prime Minister announced that new national restrictions will be in place from tomorrow, Thursday 5 November. Under the new restrictions, everyone must stay at home, and may leave only for a limited number of reasons, including:

  • education;
  • for work, if you cannot work from home;
  • exercise and recreation outdoors, with your household, support bubble or on your own with one person from another household;
  • all medical reasons, appointments and to escape injury or harm;
  • shopping for food and essentials;
  • providing care for vulnerable people, or as a volunteer.

Non-essential shops, leisure and entertainment venues will be closed. Click and collect services can continue and essential shops, including supermarkets, will remain open. Pubs, bars, restaurants must close, except for takeaway and delivery services.
