West Berkshire to enter new Tier 4 from tomorrow morning

Boris Johnson has announced that current Tier 3 areas in the South East of England, such as West Berkshire will enter a new Tier 4 set of rules.

This will be similar to the lockdown we entered in November.

The rules will include:

  • Residents 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 they can, unless this is not possible e.g. manufacturing and construction sectors
  • People should not enter or leave tier4 areas
  • Tier 4 residents must not stay overnight away from home
  • You can only meet one person from another household in an outdoor public space
  • Communal worship can continue to take place
  • You should not mix with anyone outside your household at Christmas, though support bubbles will remain in place
