On Saturday 31st October the Prime Minister announced a second lockdown in England. This will last for four weeks from Thursday 5th November (ending at midnight on the 2nd December). The Government position remains that England will revert back to the previous Tier system from the 3rd December though there is some uncertainty about whether this will be the case. New Guidance and Regulations have been produced to explain these changes. An interpretation of the rules as they pertain to hospitality can be downloaded on this page.
