Webteam: November 2020
Update 26th November, 2020
Following on from the Government's announcements this morning, the new local restriction tier system comes into effect from 2nd December 2020 in England.
Most of the guidelines will be familiar as they will be broadly the same as before the national lockdown was implemented in November. However, some adjustments will be made to improve on managing the transmission risks. The key thing to note is that communal worship will be able to restart from 2 December in all Local Restriction Tiers. Details of upcoming church services can be found on the latest Preaching Plan (attached).
Please note that wherever a gathering can take place, social distancing of 1m+ should still be strictly maintained between anyone who doesn't live together or are not in a 'support bubble.'
A helpful table of what can be done in all the tiers is available on the Connexional Coronavirus Guidance for Property pages.
