Covid-19: National restrictions will apply in England from 5 November until 2 December

Prime Minister Boris Johnson has announced a second national lockdown for England.

Pubs, restaurants, gyms and non-essential shops will have to close for four weeks from Thursday 5 November, he said.

But unlike the restrictions in spring, schools, colleges and universities can stay open.

After 2 December, the restrictions would be eased and regions would go back to the tiered system, he said.

Until Thursday 5 November, the relevant Local Covid Alert Level measures will continue to apply in the area where you live.
