England will adopt a three-tiered system of local restrictions when the national lockdown ends on 2 December.

British Prime Minister Boris Johnson is expected to detail his ‘Covid winter plan’ to MPs on Monday.

Such three-tier system of regional restrictions was already in force from 14 October until 5 November.

The original three-tier system was:

  • Tier 1 (medium): Rule of six if meeting indoors or outdoors; pubs and restaurants shut at 10pm
  • Tier 2 (high): No household mixing indoors; rule of six applies outdoors; pubs and restaurants shut at 10pm
  • Tier 3 (very high): No household mixing indoors or in some outdoor spaces; pubs and bars not serving meals are closed
