Nottingham and Nottinghamshire move to Tier 3 Very High restrictions for COVID-19

All nine councils have now agreed that Nottingham and Nottinghamshire should move together into Tier 3 restrictions for the city and the county following discussions between Government and Council Leaders.

The ‘Very High’ alert measures come into force at one minute past midnight on Friday 30 October 2020.

Government and local partners will closely monitor the impact of these new restrictions, which will be in place for 28 days from Friday 30th October and will be kept under review.

We appreciate there is a lot of information to absorb. We are continuing to work through the guidance for these stricter/additional restrictions and will share more details, guidance and FAQs as soon as possible. This information will be posted on the council websites.

Full details about the Tier 3 restrictions are on the Government website (Opens in a New Window)

Remember: Hands, face, space

  • HANDS - wash hands regularly for at least 20 seconds

  • FACE - wear face coverings in enclosed spaces where you can’t keep your distance (unless you are exempt - view the full list of exemptions (Opens in a new window)

  • SPACE - observe social distancing of 2metres (or 1metre with additional precautions where 2m is not possible) 

Self-isolate and get a free test if you have any of these symptoms:

  • a high temperature – this means you feel hot to touch on your chest or back (you do not need to measure your temperature)

  • a new, continuous cough – this means coughing a lot for more than an hour, or 3 or more coughing episodes in 24 hours (if you usually have a cough, it may be worse than usual)

  • a loss or change to your sense of smell or taste – this means you've noticed you cannot smell or taste anything, or things smell or taste different to normal

  • Do not go out if you have symptoms, except to get a test. You must not visit anywhere else until you have received results to show you are negative.

Accurate advice, from accurate sources

There will be lots of speculation and rumour so it’s important to be aware of false information:

  • Consider the source – where did you receive the information from?
  • Cross check – are other reliable platforms sharing the same information?
