Liverpool faces ‘tier 3’ lockdown: Pubs, bars and gyms expected to close

Written by on 11/10/2020

Liverpool’s leaders have agreed the city region will go into the strictest tier of England’s new lockdown system – and the new measures could last up to six months, Sky News understands.

Pubs, bars, gyms, casinos and bookmakers are expected to close, while restaurants, schools and universities would remain open.

The city region leaders have held a call with central government and asked for a monthly review of the situation.

The move has yet to be signed off by the prime minister, who is due to unveil the new three-tier system of restrictions tomorrow.

Leaders are expecting a financial contribution for track and trace systems and enforcement, but discussion on funding for local government are ongoing.
