Can I travel between tiers and can tier 2 travel to tier 1? Latest Covid lockdown rules and restrictions

AS England battles the second wave of coronavirus, the country has been put into three tiers of lockdown.

The three tiers are tier 1: Medium risk, Tier 2: High risk and Tier 3: Very high risk.

Can I travel between tiers?

The restrictions placed on tiers 1, 2 and 3 are very different.

People living in tier 1 (medium risk) areas can travel to hotels and other holiday accommodation within tier 1 and also travel to tier 2 areas.

People living in tier 2 (high risk) areas can travel to hotels and other holiday accommodation within tier 2 and also to tier 1 areas, but only with people in their household or support bubble.

People living in tier 1 and tier 2 areas are advised not to travel into tier 3 (high risk) areas at all, unless it is for work, education, to access youth services or because of caring responsibilities.

They can, however, travel through a tier 3 (high risk) area when it is part of a longer journey, like a trip to an airport or port.

People living in tier 3 (high risk) areas can travel to hotels and other holiday accommodation within tier 3, but only with people in their household or support bubble.

But tier 3 residents are advised not to travel outside of their lockdown tier, and to avoid staying overnight in another part of the UK, unless it is for work, education or caring responsibilities.

Can I still go on holiday abroad if I am in a tier 2 location?

Public transport is discouraged but trips abroad have not been outwardly banned.

What other restrictions are in place in a tier 1 location?

Areas in tier 1 — where there is medium risk of the virus — will be subject to current social distancing measures including the “rule of six”.

A 10pm pub curfew is in place, while gyms will remain open.

What other restrictions are in place in a tier 2 location?

Meeting in groups outside of your household at pubs, bars and restaurants is not allowed.

The 10pm curfew is still in place as well, meaning bars and restaurants which includes in hotels must close.

What other restrictions are in place in a tier 3 location?

Tier three includes areas of “very high” risk, where coronavirus transmission rates are of the biggest concern.

In these areas households are not allowed to mix indoors or outdoors - including in pubs and private gardens.

Pubs and bars will close in the very high alert level areas unless they can operate as a restaurant.

People have also been advised against travel in and out of the areas.
