The national lockdown across the country has ended as of midnight today (00:01 on Wednesday 2nd December) however England is now returning to a tier alert level of restrictions.

North Tyneside, alongside the rest of the North East England, will be subject to the ‘Very High’ Tier 3 restrictions for a minimum of the next two weeks.

It means that from Wednesday 2 December:

  • Households must not mix indoors or in private gardens unless in a support bubble
  • Outdoor gatherings are limited to six socially-distanced individuals
  • Hospitality settings will remain closed except for takeaway and delivery services
  • Indoor entertainment venues, such as cinemas, theatres, bowling alleys and bingo halls, must remain closed
  • Travel outside of the area is not recommended

You can find the full and detailed list of Tier 3 on the Government’s website, here.

These restrictions, which also apply to the rest of Tyne & Wear as well as Northumberland, County Durham and the Tees Valley, will be reviewed on December 16.
