Coventry Council has issues a guide now that the city has entered Tier 3. The guide, published on the website on December 2nd reads as follows :
Coventry has been placed in Tier 3 – Very High
It is right to apply tighter restrictions where the coronavirus infection rate is highest. In September and October, COVID-19 spread rapidly in all parts of the country so new national restrictions were introduced. These have now been replaced with different tiers of restrictions for different parts of the country.
The tiers are strengthened compared to the previous tiers in order to prevent an increased spread of infections.
They go from Tier 1, where the risk of coronavirus spread is described as medium, to Tier 3, where the risk is described as very high.
These local restrictions are on top of the general advice and guidance given in England on how to protect yourself against contracting the virus – frequent washing of hands, face coverings on public transport and within enclosed spaces, and social distancing by staying at least 2 metres apart (or 1 metre with a face covering or other precautions).
Remember – Hands – Face – Space
- hands – wash your hands regularly and for 20 seconds
- face – wear a face covering in indoor settings where social distancing may be difficult, and where you will come into contact with people you do not normally meet
- space – stay 2 metres apart from people you do not live with where possible, or 1 metre with extra precautions in place (such as wearing face coverings or increasing ventilation indoors
Christmas period guidance
Between 23 December and 27 December, you may choose to form an exclusive ‘Christmas bubble’ of up to three households which allows you to spend time together in private homes, to attend places of worship, or meet in a public outdoor place.
From 28 December, you must follow the guidance for Coventry’s tier and Christmas bubbles will no longer apply.
