On Saturday 31 October 2020, Boris Johnson announced plans for a new four-week lockdown in England to begin on Thursday 5th November 2020.
This lockdown will replace the rules we have come to live by since the end of September when we were put into the Tier 2 restrictions. MPs will vote on the new lockdown restrictions on Wednesday but it is expected that the majority of MPs will vote in favour meaning the lockdown will begin on Thursday 5th November and end on Wednesday 2nd December 2020 (unless government takes a decision near the end of the planned lockdown to increase the period).
It can be difficult to keep track of the changing rules and guidance so we have tried to highlight the key information below.
Schools, universities and colleges will remain open
After 2nd December, it is expected that different regions will return to the tiers one to three, depending upon the rates of infection. We are currently in Tier 2 restrictions which you should continue to follow until Thursday 5th November 2020.
The government have published their initial guidance which can be found here
