England’s second national lockdown has come to an end and has been replaced by a strengthened tier-system of measures.

Around 99 per cent of the population are now under the toughest two levels of restrictions, tier 2 and tier 3.

Areas including Manchester, Birmingham and Bristol face tier 3 restrictions, as the government’s localised approach aims to further prevent the spread of Covid-19.

In all tiers, non-essential shops, personal care services, and gyms can now open.

In tier 3 areas, pubs and restaurants will only be able to offer takeaway and delivery services. Social mixing is also limited to outdoor public spaces like parks.

In tier 2 – which includes places such as London and Liverpool – people can have a drink in a hospitality venue if it is served with a substantial meal, but cannot meet with anyone outside their household or support bubble in any indoor setting.
