Local Covid alert levels
The government’s three local Covid alert levels are:
- Medium - this means national restrictions continue to be in place (Medium-level PDF poster)
- High - areas with a higher level of infections where some additional restrictions are in place on top of restrictions in under the 'medium' alert level (High-level PDF poster)
- Very high - this is for areas with a very high level of infections and where tighter restrictions are in place. The restrictions placed on areas with a very high level of infections can vary, and are based on discussions between central and local government. You should therefore check the specific rules in your area (Very high-level PDF poster)
You can read more about local Covid alert levels and what you need to know on the Gov.UK website. Take a look at the posters in ‘Related documents’ on this page too, which explain what the restrictions mean.
In all areas of England, make sure you remember ‘Hands. Face. Space’:
- Hands– wash your hands regularly and for 20 seconds
- Face – wear a face covering in indoor settings where social distancing may be difficult, and where you will come into contact with people you do not normally meet
- Space – stay two metres apart from people you don't live with where possible, or one metre with extra precautions in place (such as wearing face coverings or increasing ventilation indoors)
