New high-level warning restrictions take effect across Stoke-on-Trent from today
Every single family and business across the city is subject to the same Tier 2 local lockdown restrictions after the lawsuit escalated.
The Stoke-on-Trent City Council came after Health Secretary Matt Hancock made the announcement on Thursday, requesting that the potters be removed from ‘moderate’ risk.
We’ve put together a list of all the things you’re no longer allowed on Stoke-on-Trent – starting today (October 24).
- You must not socialize with anyone outside your home or support bubbles in any indoor setting at home or in a public place
- You must not socialize in more than six groups outside of a park or beach or park-like place (with the exception of certain spaces including outdoor areas or parks).
- Businesses and venues can operate in a covid-safe manner without the law and closure
- Specific business is required to ensure that customers only eat and drink while seated and must be closed from 10pm to 5pm
- Businesses and venues selling food for outdoor use can continue after 10pm unless it is through a delivery service, click and collect or drive
- Schools, universities and places of worship remain open
- Weddings and janazas may proceed with restrictions on the number of participants
- Exercise classes and organized sports can continue outside. These will only be allowed indoors if people do not live with them or do not share any support with intellectuals or avoid mixing for youth or disabled sports.
- You can continue to travel to open spaces or facilities for work or access to education, but you need to reduce the number of trips where possible.
