New Government Lockdown Measures for Croydon


From Saturday 17 October, Croydon and Bromley are to be placed on Tier 2 (High Alert) covid-19 lockdown measures.

The rules for Tier 2 (High Alert) lockdown measures are as follows:

You may not meet in a group of more than six people, indoors or outdoors, unless you’re in a larger household or a support bubble.

You are not allowed to meet socially with people you do not live with indoors – this includes private homes, as well as pubs or restaurants.

You can still meet friends and family outdoors, but only in a group of up to six people.

People in support bubbles can go on meeting as before and informal childcare may also be provided.

Pubs, bars and restaurants must close by 10.00pm.


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