Rushcliffe, Nottingham, Broxtowe and Gedling Council areas are set to move to Tier 3 COVID-19 restrictions following discussions between Government and our Council Leaders.
These measures come into force at 00.01 on Thursday October 29.
The new measures will expire in 28 days and will be closely monitored by Government and local partners.
The single package of measures across these specific areas will be formally announced today (Tuesday October 27) and have been agreed to achieve a sustained reduction in infection rates, especially to help protect our vulnerable residents, the NHS and social care services.
A package of support similar to those secured in other parts of the country has been agreed to help residents and businesses who will be impacted by the new restrictions.
Further measures specific to these areas of Nottingham and Nottinghamshire will also be announced tomorrow.
Our Leader Cllr Simon Robinson said:
“We know we are asking residents and businesses to make ever more sacrifices, but they are necessary to ensure we can restrict transmission of COVID-19 and protect lives.
“The full measures will be outlined as soon as possible. Please play your part to stop the spread of the virus.”
