The government has announced on Thursday, that parts of the West and East Midlands, Yorkshire as well as Luton and Oxford city will move into Tier 2 coronavirus restrictions from one-minute past midnight on Saturday.

The areas affected across the Midlands are Dudley, Staffordshire, Telford and the Wrekin, Amber Valley, Bolsover, Derbyshire Dales, Derby City, South Derbyshire, the whole of High Peak and Charnwood.

The North England will see the changes effect East Riding of Yorkshire, Kingston-Upon-Hull, North East Lincolnshire and North Lincolnshire.

The Health Secretary Matt Hancock said, “We have agreed with local leaders to move more areas into the High Local Covid Alert Level this week,” he said in a statement.

“These restrictions are challenging for us all, but it is only by working together and following the rules that we will bring down the rates of infection. A failure to act now will only lead to longer disruption and greater economic damage.

“I want to thank everyone who is playing their part to break the chains of transmission across the country. We will beat this virus, but we must stick together as we enter the winter months.”

He said all other areas that are currently in High alert status, will remain at that level until the next review in two-weeks.
