Non-essential retail will have to shut, and the hospitality sector will have to remain closed. Schools and childcare will stay open.

Close contact services can reopen today (Friday 20), but will have to close again on November 27.

No household gatherings of more than one household will be allowed, other than current bubbling arrangements, with exceptions for caring, maintenance and house moves.
