New Covid-19 restrictions for Manchester from Wednesday 14 October

New Covid-19 restrictions for Manchester

The Government has announced that from tomorrow (Wednesday 14 October), the system for coronavirus-related restrictions will change.

These measures will replace the local restrictions that have been in effect in parts of England, including Greater Manchester.

Areas will be given a local Covid alert level by the Government, with these levels classified as either Medium, High, or Very High.ย At present, Manchester has a High Covid alert level.

As a High Covid alert level area, the following restrictions are in effect in Manchester:

โ€ข Gathering indoors with someone you donโ€™t live with is not allowed except in special circumstances (eg. a support bubble)

โ€ข No gathering of more than six people is allowed outdoors (except for organised sporting activities)

โ€ข Pubs and restaurants are required to ensure customers only consume food and drink while seated, and must close at 10pm

โ€ข Businesses/venues selling food for takeaway can continue to do so after 10pm as long as this is through delivery service, click-and-collect or drive-through

โ€ข Gyms, sports centres, hairdressers and cinemas can continue to operate in a COVID-secure manner.

Alongside these measures, rules around the wearing of face coverings are still in effect. You should continue to follow social distancing rules and regularly wash your hands.

You can view full details about the changes for high risk areas at GOV.UK

The Government will review the situation every 14 days, itโ€™s possible for areas in England to move to the Medium or Very High categories after each review.
