New Tier 4 Restrictions – What can we do?

With Tier 4 approaching at midnight tonight, new restrictions for Lytham St Annes locals will be put in place. Unfortunately this means that there will be no more takeaway coffee and mulled wine in the square, we MUST stay home!

Many members of the public have complained that the tiers and lockdowns, guidelines and rules are incredibly confusing.

Here’s what you can do whilst in a tier 4 area:

✅ Work and volunteering
You can leave home for work purposes, this includes if you work in other people’s homes.
✅ Essential activities

You can leave the house to shop for food and services from businesses that are allowed to open in tier 4 areas.

✅ Childcare and education

You can leave home for education and registered childcare, under-18 sport and physical activities. Parents can take their children to school and continue bubble arrangements for childcare.

✅ Support and childcare bubbles

If you are a single adult in a household you are still allowed to form a bubble with one other household. You may also form a childcare bubble.
You many also attend a support group of up to 15 people.

✅ Exercise and recreation

You may exercise outdoors or visit some public outdoor places such as parks and public gardens as well as outdoor sports facilities. You MUST maintain social distancing.

✅ Medical reasons, harm and compassionate visits

You can leave your home for a medical reason including a COVID-19 test medical appointments and emergencies. You may also accompany someone giving birth.
You may also leave your home to escape illness, risk or harm (such as domestic abuse), and attend veterinary services for animal welfare reasons.

✅ Communal worship and life events

You can leave home to attend or visit:

  • a place of worship for communal worship
  • a funeral or event related to a death
  • a burial ground or a remembrance garden
  • a wedding ceremony

However, weddings, funerals and religious, belief-based or commemorative events linked to someone’s death are all subject to limits on the numbers that can attend (see below).

❌  Residents should stay at home, unless they have a “reasonable excuse” such as work or education
❌  All non-essential shops, hairdressers, nail bars and indoor entertainment venues must close
❌  Gyms and indoor swimming pools, indoor sports courts and dance studios must close
❌  You cannot meet other people indoors, unless you live with them or in your support bubble
❌  People should not leave tier four areas or travel abroad, except for limited reasons incl. work/education.
