Social Media Announcement
To ALL Essex Residents,
In a move to slow the current rates of infection across our county, from Saturday, Essex will be placed into the high level of restrictions (tier 2 on the new COVID system).
What does this mean?
No household mixing indoors – this includes at home or in hospitality venues
Different households can meet outdoors in public spaces but must stick to the ‘Rule of six’
10pm curfews will remain in place for all pubs and restaurants
Remember hands, face and space.
Reduce travel where you can
If we act now, we can stop the spread and protect our loved ones as we head into the winter months.
Detailed information on the new guidelines is available here:
Please be advised, the Government’s decision applies to the Essex County Council area and NOT the #Southend and #Thurrock Council areas.
