New Three-Tier Alert System Aiming to Reduce Covid-19 Introduced in England

Coronavirus alert levels for people and business in England

On Monday 12 October 2020, the UK Government announced a new three-tier alert level system aiming to slow the coronavirus pandemic was being brought in across England, to come into force at one minute past midnight on Wednesday 14 October. While Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland haven’t adapted the same system, it is expected they will follow a similar version.

Local Covid-19 alert levels set out information for local authorities, residents and workers about what to do and how to manage the outbreak in their area.
