The Prime Minister has announced the introduction of the Local Alert Levels of Very High, High and Medium for England – Lincolnshire currently falling in the Medium category.

Local COVID Alert Levels set out the information for local authorities, residents and workers about what to do and how to manage the outbreak in their area.

The “medium” alert level – which will cover most of the country – will consist of the current national measures, which came into force on 25 September.
This includes the Rule of Six, and the closure of hospitality at 10pm.

The “high” alert level will reflect many current local interventions, but there will now be consistency across the country.This primarily aims to reduce household to household transmission by preventing all mixing between households or support bubbles indoors. The Rule of Six will apply in outdoor spaces, including private gardens. Most areas which are already subject to local restrictions will automatically move into the “high” alert level.

The “very high” alert level will apply where transmission rates are causing the greatest concern, based on an assessment of all the available data and the local situation.
