The whole of Greater London is going into Tier 2 Covid-19 restrictions

The whole region will be subject to the measures from Saturday

All boroughs in Greater London will move to Tier 2 of the government’s coronavirus restrictions this weekend as part of efforts to stop the spread of the virus in the capital.

The new rules, which will come into force from Saturday, mean you will not be allowed to socialise with people from outside your household indoors. You can, however, continue to meet outdoors in groups of up to six.

Other restrictions apply, on top of the regulations in Tier 1. You can read more about the restrictions on the government website.

The Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, said it was better to act now than wait and that he is “not willing to put Londoners’ lives at risk and we must do all we can to minimise economic damage.”

In a statement, he also said that “moving London to the next tier of restrictions from Saturday will, we hope, help slow the spread of the virus, take pressure off the NHS and help avert the possibility of a full lockdown lasting months – which would be the worst possible outcome for Londoners and our economy.”

London’s Members of Parliament were informed of the new measures this morning, prior to Helath Secretary Matt Hancock making the announcement in Parliament.

Ilford North MP, Wes Streeting, has called for more support for local businesses which will be affected by the restrictions.

Unmesh Desai, the London Assembly member for the City and east London, called the move “necessary.”

Essex will also move from Tier 1 to Tier 2 this weekend after Essex County Council called for stricter rules, but those measures do not apply to Thurrock and Southend, which both have a low number of cases and are not governed at county level.
