Check what tier your area is in when lockdown ends on December 2

Londoners today got the answer they were hoping for, with the city being placed under Tier 2 restrictions from next week.

When lockdown ends on December 2, the capital will be placed under the new restrictions that mean you can meet up to six people outside, but not indoors.

The city has escaped the higher Tier 3, unlike Birmingham, Manchester and Wolverhampton.

But while most area restrictions have been released this morning, the government’s coronavirus postcode checker has crashed.

This is believed to be due to the high number of people trying to check where their postcode falls.

However, lucky for you, we have a brand new postcode checker ourselves that will tell you exactly what restrictions apply to you.

What rules must Londoners follow?

Here are the 19 things you can and can’t do in London from December 2:

What you can do

1. Meet up to six people outside e.g. at the park or in a pub garden.

2. Stay over elsewhere if you are in a support bubble the other household.

3. Go to entertainment venues (such as cinemas, theatres, shops, bowling alleys and casinos) other than those closed by law (nightclubs).

Entertainment venues will have to close by 11pm (if the performance started before 10pm, it can go on beyond curfew).

4. Go out for a meal – premises which sell alcohol must close between 11pm and 5am (venues in airports, ports, transport services and motorway service areas are exempt) and stop taking orders after 10pm.

5. Get a takeaway after 10pm (through delivery, click and collect or drive through).

6. Go to a theatre show or sports event – venues will be able to have audiences of up to 50 per cent capacity or 2,000 people outdoors and 1,000 indoors.

7. Have a wedding ceremony (15 people can attend) or a funeral (30 people can attend, and up to 15 people at linked commemorative events like wakes or stone settings).

8. Do organised outdoor sports and physical activity like exercise classes.

9. Do organised indoor sports and physical activity if it’s possible to avoid mixing with other households. There are exceptions for indoor disability sport, sport for educational purposes and supervised sport and physical activity for under-18s.

10. Go to the gym or a swimming pool.

11. Travelling to venues and amenities that are open (but try to limit the number of journeys you make).

12. Go shopping, including in ‘non-essential shops’.

13. Go to their hair dressers or go for another beauty treatment that is permitted to open.

14. Go to places of worship with members of your household.

What you can’t do

15. Socialise with anyone who you don’t live with or who isn’t in your support bubble indoors anywhere, including at home and in public venues (this includes staying overnight elsewhere with someone not in your household or support bubble).

16. Go to pubs that aren’t serving ‘substantial meals’ with their drinks (pubs and bars must close unless they are operating as restaurants).

17. Go to the pub after 10pm – last orders are at 10pm and venues will shut by 11pm.

18. Travel and overnight stays to tier 3 areas should be avoided (although travelling through them as part of a longer journey is fine).

19. You must stick to tier 2 rules even if you travel to tier 1 (so you can’t, for example, mix indoors with people you don’t live with just because you’ve gone to a tier 1 area).

The tiers will be reviewed again on December 16, the Government has confirmed, just over a week before Christmas Day.
