The new local COVID alert levels: what you need to know
The UK Government have announced the new local COVID alert levels. Local areas will now be assigned a level as follows:
- Tier 1 = Medium
- Tier 2 = High
- Tier 3 = Very high
The different tiers depend on the number of COVID cases in that area. Depending on what level/tier your area has been assigned will make a change to the restrictions and actions you will need to take, when in that area or travelling to another area.
What do the different levels mean and how do I know what tier my area is in?
For an explanation of what all the different levels/tiers mean, an at a glance map of Surrey and alert levels/tiers and a link to a postcode checker please visit our Coronavirus web page: Alert Levels and Local Outbreak Control Plan.
