Covid-19: 20 million Britons enter the strictest level of restrictions today

The Secretary of Health, Matt Hancock, has told parliamentarians that the increase in cases in England means that “third-tier measures need to be applied more broadly, including Liverpool and North Yorkshire.” In level three areas, mixing of people from different households is prohibited indoors and in private gardens, while the rule of six applies in public spaces. Stores, gyms, and personal care services can stay open, but hospitality establishments must close, except for takeout. All level changes will take effect at 00:01 GMT on Thursday, December 31.
