The city Lancashire has agreed to move into Tier 3, meaning indoor places, restaurants and lots of public places will shut. This is because of a huge rise of Coronavirus cases over 20,000.
The government has recently introduced a new system for levels of coronavirus - called ‘Tiers’. The lowest is Tier 1, and the highest is Tier 3. England is now in Tier 2, meaning that social gatherings of over 6 people is not allowed.
For other parts of the United Kingdom, Wales started enforcing local lockdowns a week ago and The government plan for Schools in Northern Ireland to close after the half term.
