Most of the country is under a Level 2 lockdown, with domestic mixing bans inside.
However, much of the country is subject to a Level 3 lockdown, which is the highest form of lockdown currently possible.
These areas should be closed to level 2 residents.
Government advice currently states that level 2 residents should “avoid traveling or staying overnight in level 3 areas other than when necessary, such as for work, education, youth services, to receive medical treatment or because of family responsibilities ”.
You are allowed to cross level 3 zones to get to another destination.
There are more areas under a level 3 lockout this time around compared to the previous three-level system in October.
