Cheshire East has been placed into the government's Covid alert level 'high' also known as 'Tier Two'.
This means that people in the Cheshire East Borough Council area are subject to additional restrictions over and above those seen previously in the borough and those seen in many other parts of the country that have now been rated as 'medium' (Tier One).
The new restrictions come into place today, Wednesday 14 October, subject to House of Commons vote.
From today, people in Cheshire East must not socialise indoors with anybody from outside their household or support bubble. This applies, for example, to going inside at a friend's or family member's house or meeting people from outside your household in an indoor public space. It also applies to meeting with people from outside your household inside a pub or restaurant. This is no longer allowed.
'The rule of six' still applies in outdoor spaces. This means that people from different households can meet in a group of up to six people outside, including in private gardens, beer gardens and alfresco dining, or other spaces, like beaches or parks, (other than where specific exemptions apply). However, 'the rule of six' does not replace the need for social distancing. Keep your distance — two metres is best.
The council is now working to understand the full impact of the new regulations and will provide updates as the implications for Cheshire East residents, businesses and other organisations become clear.
