COVID19 - Essex moving to Tier 2: High alert on Wednesday 2 December
The government has announced that the majority of the country, including Essex, is to be placed under new Tier 2 (High) restrictions when the current national restrictions lift on Wednesday 2 December.
The following key changes apply under the updated Tier 2 restrictions:
- social mixing outside of individual households will not be allowed indoors and the rule of six will still apply outdoors
- pubs and bars and restaurants can open but only serve alcohol with substantial meals
- businesses including shops can open, in a Covid-secure manner, other than those which remain closed by law, such as nightclubs.
It's clear the decision to place Essex into High Covid alert level prior to national restrictions had a positive impact. In the weeks following entry to Tier 2 there was a significant flattening of the upward curve and regionally, Essex’s case rate reduced, from being in the top three council areas to the bottom two. We have seen a subsequent increase in the past two weeks, but Essex case rates have now stabilised. Hospital occupancy has also stabilised.
We recognise that there is still work to be done. We understand that going back into Tier 2 will be hard for many, but we must all work together, follow the restrictions in order to save further lives and continue to protect our NHS.
Our aim is to bring the rate of transmission and Covid hospital occupancy down so that Essex can be placed in the lowest tier of restrictions as quickly as possible. With the help of everyone who lives and works here we can achieve this.
Now more than ever, we need people to follow the rules of hands, face, space, work from home if possible, and always socially distance.
