London will move into tier 3 from midnight tonight/Wednesday 16th December.
Here is a breakdown of what this means for you:
No mixing is allowed with other people indoors apart from your household or bubble, nor can you meet in a private garden.
However, up to six people can meet outside in public parks or playgrounds.
These can open but will be expected to operate in a Covid-secure manner or risk closure.
Pubs, bars and restaurants
These must close except for takeaway, delivery and click and collect services.
All shops can stay open but must operate in a Covid-secure manner.
Theatres and cinemas
These, as well as bowling alleys, nightclubs and casinos must all close.
Work advice remains for people to work from home whenever possible.
Official advice is to limit travelling as much as possible and reducing the number of journeys you take wherever possible.
You can continue to travel within your area for reasons such as:
To access charitable or youth services
To carry out caring responsibilities
For moving house
To visit your support bubble
To receive medical support
All nurseries, schools, colleges and universities can remain open.
Hotels, B&Bs, campsites, holiday lets and guest houses must close.
There are a limited number of exceptions listed on the Government website, including people who need temporary accommodation while moving house or attending a funeral.
Places of worship
These are allowed to be open but people must stick to their own household or support bubble.
Weddings and funerals
No more than 15 guests are permitted at weddings, receptions and wakes. Only 30 guests at funerals.
Amateur sport and exercise
Organised adult sport can take place outdoors but not inside if it involves social mixing.
All organised sport for children and elite athletes is allowed.
Gyms and pools can open but must be Covid secure.
Spectator sports and concerts
