Our COVID alert level
Under Tier 2 we have the following guidance and restrictions.
- Socialise with anybody outside of your household or support bubble in any indoor setting, whether at home or in an indoor public place
- Meet in groups larger than six
- Change your household or childcare support bubbles - these must remain consistent
- Visit care homes, unless in exceptional circumstances
- Socialise in a group of six or less outside, including in a garden or other public spaces such as parks (other than where specific exemptions apply in law). You must abide by the rule of six if you are meeting others in outdoor settings. Please be extra cautious if you plan to meet with other households
- Continue to keep businesses and hospitality venues open as long as they are COVID-secure (other than those that remain closed in law)
- Visit hospitality, but this will be table service only and venues must close between 10pm and 5am by law
- Keep your business/venue selling food for consumption off the premises after 10pm, as long as this is through delivery service, click-and-collect or drive-through
- Go to school/university
- Go to places of worship, subject to the rule of six
- Get married or attend a funeral, but there are restrictions on numbers of attendees (15 at a wedding, 30 at a funeral)
- Attend exercise classes and organised sport outdoors, or indoors if the rule of six is followed. Indoor exercise is permitted if it is possible for people to avoid mixing with people from other households, or for youth or disability sport
- Travel to venues or amenities that are open, for work or to access education, but you should look to reduce the number of journeys you make where possible

Coronavirus case data
In the seven days to 18 October, Warrington had 730 confirmed new cases of coronavirus.
In the most recent four days to 22 October, there were an additional 310 cases. However, these numbers are incomplete and likely to increase due to delayed reporting from the laboratory to Public Health England.
Don't forget the basics
- Maintain excellent hand hygiene – wash or sanitise your hands regularly
- Keep your distance – try and keep two metres away from people outside your household, or household support bubble, at all times
- Wear a face covering where appropriate, unless exempt on health grounds, including on public transport and in shops
