Are Beauty Salons Open Under New Tier 3 Restrictions?

As of 2nd December 2020, England officially came out of its second lockdown.

The British Prime Minister made clear, that after the second lockdown, each county would be put under a different tier to manage their local areas infection rates.

However, there is a little bit of confusion for residents and business a like to know exactly what rules they should be following in each tier. This confusion is further perpetuated by the fact that the tiers in each area can and will change every so often.

To manage the confusion the first thing you need to be sure of is which tier you are in.
