Tighter rules on social mixing announced for four new areas

Written by on 01/10/2020

Tougher coronavirus restrictions are being imposed on the Liverpool city region, Warrington, Hartlepool and Middlesbrough.

Health Secretary Matt Hancock said residents in the regions will be urged not to socially mix with people from different households – except in outdoor spaces like parks and outdoor hospitality settings.

And he warned against “all but essential travel” – meaning people can still go to work and school.
