Liverpool And The Rest Of England To Enter A National Lockdown At Midnight Tonight
Liverpool will be entering another National Lockdown as akin to the one that occurred in March 2020.
This comes as after another U-Turn by Prime Minister Johnson earlier today (Monday 4th January 2021) after stating that children will remain in schools as they were safe.
The Government website states: 'You must stay at home. The single most important action we can all take is to stay at home to protect the NHS and save lives.
'You should follow this guidance immediately. The law will be updated to reflect these new rules.'
The rules as stated by Central Government are as follows:
'You must not leave, or be outside of your home except where necessary. You may leave the home to:
shop for basic necessities, for you or a vulnerable person
go to work, or provide voluntary or charitable services, if you cannot reasonably do so from home
exercise with your household (or support bubble) or one other person, this should be limited to once per day, and you should not travel outside your local area.
meet your support bubble or childcare bubble where necessary, but only if you are legally permitted to form one
seek medical assistance or avoid injury, illness or risk of harm (including domestic abuse)
attend education or childcare - for those eligible'
The National Lockdown, which is also being referred to as Tier 5, is to last until at least Monday 15th of February 2021.
