The Government have announced three local COVID alert levels. To visit gov.uk for the latest government guidance follow the links for the different levels.
The levels are:
- Medium - this means national restrictions continue to be in place
- High - areas with a higher level of infections where some additional restrictions are in place on top of restrictions in alert level medium
- 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.

- Space – stay 2 metres apart from people you do not live with where possible, or 1 metre with extra precautions in place (such as wearing face coverings or increasing ventilation indoors)
