Halloween at the entrance to the Halloween Tier 2 lockdown and as the East Riding Titter seems to be becoming a real nightmare before Christmas.
On Wednesday (October 28th), the councilor and the government were reportedly in talks to place the two regions in the high-risk section of the coronavirus alert system.
This is because cases continue to grow across the region.
Another 299 positive tests were found on Wednesday and 242 more cases just 24 hours ago.

An announcement could be made early Thursday (October 29th) as both councils are ready to continue talks with the government and formally confirm.
Hull and East Riding are both expected to move to Tier 2 by midnight on Halloween, Hull Live understands.
In most cases this is not surprising. The area has been knocking on Tier 2 doors for some time.
The cases have really increased recently and the death toll has started rising again.

The number of new cases has increased to 142 on Wednesday.
Since the onset of the epidemic, the city now has 3,574 cases with an infection rate of 1,375.8 per population.
157 cases have also been confirmed in East Riding.
There are now 4,529 cases in the area and the infection rate has risen to 1,327.5
Over the past seven days, there have been 856 new coronaviruses in East Riding and a further 69 cases in Hall.
No other deaths were reported on Wednesday, but eight were announced in the previous five days.
The death toll at hospitals in Hull and East Yorkshire is 230.
So you can see that it is no surprise that talks are underway to place this area in 2 tiers.
This means that stricter restrictions will be enforced.
Most importantly, different families will no longer be able to blend into the interior of the home, let alone in their own home or public place, unless you form a support bubble.
- Areas classified as high risk have restrictions on indoor mixing in the home and six rules continue to apply externally.
- People must not meet friends and family indoors in any setting unless they are with them or form a support bubble with them.
- 15 guests were allowed at the wedding and 30 at the funeral, 15 at the reception and waking.
- Shops, gyms, all educational settings and places of worship may be open with permission to stay overnight.
- Travel advice for those who live in the Tier 2 area is to reduce the number of places where they are traveling and avoid traveling to the 3rd level of the very high level.
If things don’t improve in the next six to eight weeks, it means Halloween is really a pre-Christmas nightmare.
There is some relief. Moving to Tier 2 will not necessarily affect pubs, bars and restaurants.
They can still run until 10pm and will be able to operate many shops, gyms, hair salons and other businesses in the area as usual.
Additional government funds will also be provided to move to Level 2.

Businesses will be eligible for a monthly contribution of 2, 100,100 and an increased contribution to workers’ wages under the Job Assistance Scheme.
For now, councilors and Westminster who are in talks with Hull City and its neighbors in East Ride are waiting to confirm the continuation.
Things will look different by Saturday.
