New lockdown restrictions as Cheshire East moves to 'high' risk

3c60cd0252aaa6f64b4a1108cc598e64

New lockdown restrictions will be implemented in Cheshire East on Wednesday, 14th October, following the Prime Minister's announcement of a new three-tier lockdown system which placed every city and town in the UK in one of three levels.

Cheshire East has been placed in the high (medium) tier - along with Cheshire West - which means pubs and restaurants are allowed to remain open but residents can no longer mix with people outside of their household or social bubble indoors.

However, you will still be able to meet people who are not from your household outdoors - whilst observing the existing Rule of Six.

The tier two lockdown rules are:

People from outside your bubble are not allowed inside your home (unless they are within your support bubble)

• You cannot go inside anyone else's home (unless they are within your support bubble)

• You cannot mix with people outside of your own household (or social bubble) indoors

• You can continue to mix with up to six people outdoors

• Social distancing and the 10pm curfew for hospitality remains.

The new lockdown restrictions will be reviewed every four weeks.

"High (medium)"?

Is it not already confusing enough?

So you can go to a pub where you mix with lots of other people. Is it me ?

You can’t go your friends/relatives house, but you can meet them in a pub, where there will be loads of other people too.

Fiona asks "Who is policing this farce?"
Well it's obvious - it's the inmates of the asylum- mumbo-jumbo and other nonsensical languages which have confusing or conflicting messages. Their messages are neither clear or easy to absorb for the wider population intent on a boozy good time at all costs.

Who voted this Government in...?
Oh yes.... Tatton is always Tory, no matter how stupid their party policies. Look at “our” constituency history: Neil Hamilton..... Gidiot Osborne.... etc.
Well done folks.

And yet we proved there is another way- remember when we booted out party politics and had an Independent MP?

I live in north Cheshire so will ignore anything from Cheshire East or West , which are just geographical areas.

What time on Wednesday do these new non social mixing rules apply? Before the England game or after?
