The Liverpool City Region will again enter the Tier 3 Restrictions; the rules will be in place from midnight tonight, Wednesday 30th December 2020.

This news comes as another blow for the retail and hospitality industries, as well as theatre and performance.

'Liverpool City Region (will be moving to Tier 3 from Thursday 31 December)' - Central Government.

The announcement from Central Government in London means that the city's gyms, cafes, pubs, bars, restaurants, and performance venues such as theatres will be forced to close as a result. Some coffee shops and restaurants may chose to opt in providing take out orders.

The news will result in many New Year's Eve plans being going awry and compulsive cancellations of restaurant bookings; resulting in a large amount of food wastage that will cost many businesses additional money that they cannot afford to lose.

Supermarkets and 'non-essential shops' are to remain open with Central Government asking people not to go to the shops unless it is necessary.

On the Government's tier list section of the website, Liverpool is currently still listed as 'Tier 2: High Alert', under the category for North West England the Government states: 'Liverpool City Region (will be moving to Tier 3 from Thursday 31 December)'.

Moving from 'Tier 3: Very High Alert' into 'Tier 4: Stay at Home' are 27 authorities across the UK including Greater Manchester, Bristol, South Yorkshire and Cheshire.

The only UK area that will remain below Tier 3 is the Isle of Scilly, which is currently in 'Tier 1: Medium Alert', and will remain so for the foreseeable future.
