Gloucestershire in Covid-19 Tier 2 – live updates


Gloucestershire has been placed under level 2 Covid-19 restrictions by the government, it has been announced.
The county had been subject to level 2 coronavirus restrictions after the second nationwide lockdown and will remain at the same level of risk after a review.

This means that the area is still considered a “high” risk area.

The government will review the levels every two weeks and areas may move up or down the scale.

The rules that county households have to follow since early December remain the same.

These include groups of six that cannot meet indoors, unless they come from the same household, but the rule of six applies outdoors.

Pubs and bars can remain open, as long as they serve large meals and function as a restaurant in order to remain open under regulations.

The levels review takes place every two weeks and zones are placed in certain levels for a variety of reasons, such as the projected pressures on the NHS.

Sports fans will still be able to step into the stadiums and watch their favorite teams such as Cheltenham Town, Forest Green Rovers and Gloucester Rugby.

Under the restrictions, 2,000 people, or 50% of the outdoor stadium’s capacity, whichever is less, could enter the ground. That would mean for example 2,000 fans allowed at Kingsholm.
