Residents of the East Riding are being urged to continue to follow COVID-19 safety guidance with the news that the area will remain in Tier 3 (Very High).
The Government has today (30th December) announced that the East Riding, along with the Humber area, will remain in Tier 3.
Ministers have made decisions on which areas are in which tiers based on factors such as how quickly infection rates are rising or falling, the ratio of positive tests and the current and projected pressure on the NHS.
Some of the key aspects of Tier 3 restrictions are:
- No mixing of different households indoors or outdoors, including hospitality venues and private gardens
- The rule of six applies in outdoor public spaces such as parks
- Pubs and restaurants closed, except for take-away and delivery services
- Indoor entertainment venues closed
- Accommodation such as hotels, B&Bs, campsites, and guest houses must close. There are several exemptions, such as for those who use these venues as their main residence, and those requiring the venues where it is reasonably necessary for work or education and training
- Guidance against travelling in and out of Tier 3 areas
- Personal care, such as hairdressing, is allowed
The Government has said it will review tier allocations on the 27th January 2021.
