Local COVID Restrictions

From Wednesday 2 Decmber, local restrictions will apply in your area replacing the national restrictions.

The new measures will apply across Essex and is currently set at Tier 2 or 'High alert level'.

Tier 2: High alert

  • Pubs and bars may not provide alcohol for consumption on the premises, unless with a substantial meal, so they are operating as a restaurant. They may remain open for take-away services.
  • Other hospitality businesses – including cafes, restaurants and social clubs – can only serve alcohol with substantial meals. If they are a business which serves alcohol for consumption on the premises, they must be table service only. In cinemas, theatres, concert halls and sports stadia, alcohol can be ordered at a bar to be consumed when seated in the auditorium or area where the screening/performance is taking place. This should be limited to only those with tickets. When it is to be consumed in the bar area itself, it must be part of a substantial meal and full table service must be provided.
  • Hospitality venues that do not serve alcohol may allow someone to order from the counter, but they must still consume their meal from a seat if eating in.
  • Casinos, theatres, museums, bowling alleys, adult gaming centres and amusement arcades, funfairs, theme parks and adventure parks and activities, bingo halls, cinemas, theatres, concert halls and sports stadiums may open but early closure (11pm) applies.
  • Tour groups must operate in line with social contact rules. This means that larger tours where different households or support bubbles (or groups of more than 6 if outdoors) interact will not be feasible.
  • Accommodation, such as hotels, holiday lets and guesthouses, may open but businesses must take reasonable steps to ensure that social contact rules are followed within their venues. People can still travel within Tier 2 areas to hotels and other guest accommodation with people in their household or support bubble. People who live in a Tier 2 area, must continue to follow Tier 2 rules when they travel to a Tier 1 area.
