Lockdown ends in tiers - Devon in 'Tier 2: High Alert' level from 2 December

Published: 27 November 2020

When this period of national lockdown ends on Wednesday 2 December the government will re-introduce local restriction tiers. 

These are different levels of restriction that will apply to different parts of the country, depending how prevalent coronavirus is and how rapidly it is spreading.

It is similar to the system we had before, but the tiers have been strengthened in order to try and prevent the sharper increase in the rate of infections, which led to the second national lockdown.

There are three tiers of local restrictions, and the government has decided that Devon is in 'Tier 2: High Alert', subject to parliamentary approval.
