Coronavirus: Stoke-on-Trent, Coventry and Slough to move into Tier 2


Coronavirus: Stoke-on-Trent, Coventry and Slough to move into Tier 2

News Agencies:LT24:Sky:: Stoke-on-Trent, Coventry and Slough will move into coronavirus Tier 2 restrictions and discussions will begin on the possibility of placing Warrington into Tier 3.

Health Secretary Matt Hancock made the announcement in the House of Commons.

Tougher measures for the three areas moving to Tier 2 will come into effect from 12:01am on Saturday – meaning people will not be able to meet other households socially indoors.

Mr Hancock said in all of them, infections have risen to over 100 per 100,000 people with cases doubling every fortnight.

He added for all those residents affected, “we’ll support you all the way through”, pointing to the further help for workers and firms unveilled by Chancellor Rishi Sunak earlier.

The three-tier system for England was unveiled by Prime Minister Boris Johnson earlier this month in a bid to simplify the rules, as the country heads into a second spike of COVID-19 cases.
