Live coronavirus and tier updates as Yorkshire prepares for new rules

Written by on 28/11/2020

Coronavirus vaccines could be rolled out in Leeds as early as December.

Vaccination sites are being considered within the NHS, as well as in community settings for vulnerable residents in the city, with health and care workers, people over 80 and care home residents first on the list.

The mass-vaccination of the public in Leeds is then expected to follow shortly afterwards, starting early in the new year.

People across Yorkshire are getting ready for new coronavirus restrictions with national lockdown set to end on December 2.

Bradford, Leeds, Kirklees, Sheffield and Kirklees – as well as the rest of West Yorkshire and South Yorkshire – will enter Tier 3 on Wednesday with pubs and restaurants remaining closed except for takeaways and delivery and household mixing banned indoors and outdoors in places such as private gardens and beer gardens.

North Yorkshire and York will enter Tier 2 – where pubs that serve a ‘substantial meal’ can remain open, but indoor household mixing is banned.
