Warrington Tier 3- 26th December 2020
The Tier 3 restrictions for Warrington are expected to come into play from 00.01am on Boxing Day, Saturday 26 December.
The announcement to move Warrington back into Tier 3 comes as the latest verified seven-day total for positive COVID-19 cases in the town stands at 494. The borough is now seeing 235.2 cases per 100,000 as of 16 December, which is a steep increase from previous weeks.
Warrington’s move to a ‘very high’ risk area means that:
- You must not socialise with anybody you don’t live with, unless you have formed a household or childcare support bubble, in any indoor setting or venue – including homes or restaurants
- You must not socialise with anybody you don’t live with, unless you have formed a household or childcare support bubble, in any private garden, or at most outdoor hospitality venues and ticketed events
- You must not socialise in a group of more than six in an outdoor public space, like parks
- You should avoid travelling outside Warrington wherever possible – only essential journeys, such as for work or caring responsibilities, should be made
- You should avoid staying overnight in another part of the UK
- Hospitality (eg bars, cafes and restaurants) must cease to provide food and drink for consumption on the premises
If you’ve had a positive test result, are displaying coronavirus symptoms, or are told to self-isolate via NHS Test and Trace or local contact tracers, then you must observe self-isolation rules immediately and not mix with anyone outside your household for the full isolation period.
The full list of ‘very high’ risk guidance, restrictions and exemptions will be updated on the Warrington Borough council’s coronavirus page.
