New COVID restrictions for Waltham Forest – Tier 3: Very High Alert

December 15, 2020

From Wednesday, 16 December, the Government have announced that Waltham Forest (and the whole of London plus parts of Essex and Hertfordshire) will be in Tier 3: Very High Alert as urgent action is needed to reduce transmission of the virus in these areas. Latest data shows an exponential rise in cases as well as rising local hospital admissions which will soon put additional pressure on already overstretched NHS capacity

An overview of Tier 3 rules is shown on our COVID-19 information page with more detailed information available here on the Government website.

During the Christmas period (23 to 27 December) different rules on social contact will apply. See here for details.
