It was announced today that Lincolnshire will be placed into tier 3 at the end of the national lockdown on 2 December.

This means the county will face the most serious restrictions that the Government has imposed.

The news came as a shock to many people in Lincolnshire, including Lincolnshire County Council.

Council Leader Martin Hill said: “It’s very disappointing that the whole of Lincolnshire has gone into tier 3 as we are seeing infection rates fall, especially in those few districts that were previously causing concern – and this could have a crippling effect on our hospitality sector.

“This is an important aspect of our economy and we will want to have a conversation about the additional support our businesses would need during this time. We appreciate that the furlough and other support is in place until 31 March but many of our businesses will only partially open and need the Christmas economy to survive, given the nature of this year.”

What will tier 3 look like in Lincolnshire?

This time, the third tier will be harsher, as the Government seeks to clamp down on rising infection rates. Some restrictions include:

  • You cannot meet indoors or in private gardens with anyone outside of your
    household or support bubble. However, you can meet in a public space as long as you follow the rule of three.
  • Hospitality venues such as restaurants and bars cannot open any indoor seating but can operate a takeaway or delivery service.
  • Hotels, bed and breakfasts, campsites and guest hotels will have to stay shut.
  • Indoor entertainment sites must close. This includes cinemas, play centres and casinos.
  • Gyms and leisure centres can open, but cannot offer group activities.
  • A maximum of 15 people are allowed at wedding ceremonies, and 30 people at funerals.
  • Outdoor sport can continue, but indoor sport must stop.
  • You must avoid travelling around the U.K.
