Thurrock stays at Medium Covid alert level, as most of Essex enters Tier 2

Thurrock will not enter Tier 2 of the government’s coronavirus restrictions system, despite most other parts of Essex being placed into the High alert level. 

Different households in Essex will not be allowed to mix indoors from Saturday, although they will still be able to meet outdoors as long as no more than six people are present. 

However, the rules will not apply to people living in Thurrock and Southend-on-Sea, which will both remain at the medium alert level. 

Earlier this week, Thurrock Council argued it would be wrong to increase the alert level for the area as it has one of the lowest numbers of positive Covid-19 test results in England. 

“Common sense has prevailed and this is the right decision for Thurrock,” said the leader of Thurrock Council, Cllr Rob Gledhill. 

“Increasing the alert level to High in Thurrock would have impacted businesses, especially in the hospitality sector, and our residents as they may not have been able to see family and friends and it may well have had a further negative impact on those with physical and mental health conditions.”

Cllr Gledhill also warned residents to remain vigilant as further restrictions could be imposed if the area sees an increase in the number of coronavirus cases. 

“We cannot be complacent,” added Cllr Gledhill. “I have repeatedly thanked our residents for all they have done in the fight against this virus, but we must continue to play our part.

“The only way that Thurrock can avoid being moved to a higher level of restrictions is for us to remember hands, face, space. Don’t give coronavirus a chance!”
