Lockdown rules live as England braced for tough restrictions

A new national lockdown for England will begin on Thursday, Prime Minister Boris Johnson announced.

The country will again be subject to strict national restrictions until December 2, subject to a vote in parliament on Wednesday.

New strict measures will take effect shortly after midnight on Thursday morning.

According to the new rules, people should only leave their home for educational reasons – schools and universities remain open – and work if this is not possible from home.

Exercise and recreation in the open air are not restricted, as with the initial lock. However, this can only be done with your own household or bladder, or alone with someone from another household or bladder.

As with the initial lockdown, all pubs, bars and restaurants will have to close, with the exception of takeaway and delivery.

Click and Collect services can continue and important stores, including groceries, remain open. For more information on what you can and cannot do under the second national ban rule, see Click here.
