Government Lockdown Measures – November 2020

From Thursday 5 November, England will enter another lockdown period which will last until Wednesday 2 December.

The new measures are as follows:

You should only leave the house for these reasons:

  • for education
  • for work, if you cannot work from home
  • for exercise and recreation outdoors
  • for medical reasons
  • to shop for food and essentials
  • to care for others

You can only meet one person from outside your household outdoors.

There will be no mixing of people inside homes, except for childcare and other forms of support. Support bubbles will be allowed to continue.

All pubs and restaurants are to close, though takeaways and deliveries will be permitted.

All non-essential retail will close, though click and collect will still be available.

Travel within the UK is discouraged, except for work.

Overnight stays away from home will be allowed only for work purposes.

Courts, schools, and universities will remain open.

Private prayer will continue in places of worship, but not services.

If you have symptoms of coronavirus (COVID-19), ask for a test to check if you have the virus.
