Tier-two restrictions announced for Sheffield with indoor mixing of households banned
Restrictions have been tightened
Sheffield was today placed on a tier-two lockdown by the government, meaning the indoor mixing of households is not allowed – even in pubs, restaurants, and bars.
Two households can meet outdoors in public, as long as the rule of six and social distancing are followed.
Elsewhere, Liverpool was placed on a tier-three lockdown, meaning pubs and bars will be forced to close.
Retail shops, schools, and universities will remain open in all three tiers of the lockdown.
Areas on tier-one will be subject to the same rules as those which currently apply across the country, such as the rule of six and the 10 pm hospitality curfew.
