On 12 the October the Government introduced a new Tier System for local Covid 19 alert levels. Local authorities in Tier 1 are at 'Medium' risk, those in Tier 2 'High risk' and those at Tier 3 are at 'Very High Risk'.
Dudley has been placed into Tier 1, which means that the current restrictions continue to apply, including the 'Rule of Six' on all indoor and outdoor gatherings and the 10pm curfew for hospitality settings.
Sandwell has been placed into Tier 2, which means that you must not socialise with anyone outside your household or support bubble in any indoor setting, whether at home or in a public space.
