BREAKING: Norfolk and Suffolk will be in Tier 2 lockdown rules as of December
All of Norfolk and Suffolk will both be in Tier 2 as part of the regional lockdown that commences on December 2.
The announcement came this morning, as the government website crashed due to the sheer volume of visitors desperately trying to find out what Tier they will be in over the winter.
Under Tier 2 rules, hospitality venues will be allowed to stay open until 11pm – with last orders at 10pm – only those that serve substantial meals can operate.
Pubs and bars that do not will have to close.
Social mixing outside of households or support bubbles will not be allowed indoors. The rule of six will apply outdoors.
Spectators will be allowed to watch sport in tier 2, with a maximum crowd capacity outdoors of 50% of the capacity of the stadium or 2,000 people, whichever is smaller. Indoors, the maximum capacity is 1,000.
Indoor entertainment venues, such as cinemas, casinos and bowling alleys, must also close.
