The crushing Christmas level 3 restrictions Hull faces after lockdown ends


Boris Johnson is set to announce new, tougher levels for England when we come out of lockdown on December 2nd.Although confirmation of the area in which the level will be located has not been announced, it is expected that Hull and East Yorkshire will be placed in level 3 with the strictest restrictions in place as it approaches. Christmas.

The government has previously said the tier system will be simplified and entire regions will be covered by the same restrictions rather than on a city or town basis.

And with Hull currently having the highest infection rates in the country, all signs are that the most difficult level will be implemented on the Humber.

But what might these restrictions look like? Large parts of Yorkshire already have Level 3 measures in place.

South Yorkshire entered level 3 weeks before the lockdown and West Yorkshire was to be placed at level 3, but it was canceled because the whole country was locked down.

That’s what to expect, based on what was previously planned for West Yorkshire, but the rules in Hull could be even stricter this time around.
