What Are The New Tier 4 Restrictions?


Once again the UK has been forced into a time of uncertainty which has prevented Christmas celebration for many and has left many wondering what are the new Tier 4 restrictions?

On Saturday night, Boris Johnson, announced new tier 4 restrictions for London, the south-east and east of England, amid a surge in Covid-19 cases and alarm about a new strain of coronavirus spreading rapidly in the region.

Central London is deserted after the new Tier 4 restrictions were introduced on Sunday.

Which areas are under the new Tier 4 restrictions?

All areas in the south-east of England that were under tier 3 measures, including London, moved into Tier 4 on Sunday.

What are the new Tier 4 restrictions?

The key changes in this tier include:

 Non-essential shops, hairdressers, and leisure and entertainment venues must close.
