Message from Iona Parker - 14 December 2020
Dear Parish Clerks
I am sure many of you have heard the announcement by Matt Hancock but Braintree District has been put into tier 3 with effect from midnight tomorrow 15th December. This is due to a big increase in cases in the District.
Please see this link ("Local-restriction-tiers-what-you-need-to-know - Very-high-alert ) which lists the restrictions for tier 3. The main difference between tiers 2 and 3 is that hospitality must close for all but take away, accommodation venues must close, restrictions on people meeting in private gardens and restrictions on travel outside the area.
As soon as I have more information, I will let you know.
