Yesterday, Boris Johnson set out plans for his new 3 tier lockdown system, which comes into effect this Wednesday.
Crawley is in the “Medium” category currently which means not much changes for us.
I’ve set out below what this means for the town:
Meeting friends and family
You can meet in a group of up to six people from multiple households. This includes children and applies indoors and outdoors, including private homes. There are exceptions, for example if your household or support bubble is larger than six. You could be fined for breaking these rules.
Going to work
You should work at home if possible. If you have to return to your workplace your employer must make arrangements for you to work safely.
Schools and nurseries
Primary and secondary schools are open, as are nurseries and childcare. If a school has coronavirus cases, local health protection teams will advise what to do.
Pubs, bars and restaurants must close at 22:00 BST. They are restricted to table service only. Face coverings must be worn, except when seated to eat or drink.
Shops can open with social distancing measures in place. Face coverings must be worn by customers and staff.
Face coverings must be worn on public transport and indoor areas such as museums and cinemas. You can be fined £200 for breaking the rules.
