Latest Coronavirus Update

Alert message sent 15/10/2020 10:01:00

Information sent on behalf of Leicestershire Police

Good morning community,

Following the latest Government announcement I thought it only right to confirm the current situation in relation to where our community sits within the Tier system.

A new three tier system is to be introduced to help standardise the rules and regulations and how they are implemented in local areas.

The three tiers are:

Tier 1 or Medium – rule of six applies, 10pm pubs curfew, social distancing rules apply

Tier 2 or High – everything in Tier 1 but with additional restrictions to tackle a rise in positive cases in a local area. Indoor gatherings are banned, people should only use public transport for essential reasons

Tier 3 or Very High – everything in Tiers 1 and 2 plus closure of pubs. Places that serve a “substantial meal” can remain open until 10pm. Non-essential travel is restricted, overnight stays not allowed, no mixing with other households in gardens but can in other outdoor settings in line with the rule of six.

In all tiers schools, universities and non-essential retail to remain open.

We in the Stoneygate Beat Area, along with the whole of Leicester City (and Oadby & Wigston) fall within the Tier 2 (High) category. Please follow the link to find the full Government guidance. Covid Alert Level Guidance.

With the whole community working together we can help to reduce the virus levels and safeguard our friends, relatives and colleagues.
Remember - Hands, Face, Space
  • Hands - Wash hands. Keep washing your hands regularly.
  • Face - Cover face. Wear a face covering in enclosed spaces.
  • Space - Make space. Stay at least 2 metres apart - or 1 metre with a face covering or other precautions.
Help us to help each other by following the rules.

Stay safe, stay healthy.
