COVID-19 England: Three Tiered System

by | Oct 20, 2020

On Monday, the UK government introduced a new, three tier system that meant placing different parts of the country into different COVID alert level categories.

This more localised approach meant that depending on the number of COVID-19 cases in a given area, it was placed in either a Medium, High or Very High COVID alert level.

The tiered system explained, by The Telegraph.

What does this mean for the beauty industry?

 

So far, in Medium and High rated locations, beauty industries, categorised as ‘Personal care and close contact services’ remain open. However, in Very High rated locations, rules for personal care and close contact services may differ by location. Whilst most remain open you can find out detailed Coronavirus restrictions in your local area at: https://www.gov.uk/find-coronavirus-local-restrictions
