Until 3 December, tier requirements will not apply because of the new national restrictions. As part of the national restrictions, however, we continue to recognise providing informal social care to relatives and vulnerable people is of the highest importance.

The local Covid alert level Very High restrictions are designed to reduce the transmission of the virus. In so doing all bars and public houses are closed, similarly restaurants and cafes can remain open only if they serve a substantial meal, alcohol may only be served with a substantial meal. The same applies to private members clubs; they are prohibited from staying open if they simply serve alcohol. They may remain open if they serve substantial meals and may serve alcohol with the same.
