The guidelines for the different tiers are as follows:
Tier 1: Medium Alert
Within this tier accommodation has been given the go ahead to open.
People within Tier 1 are permitted to go on overnight stays with their household, support bubble or in a group of up to 6 people.
Tier 2: High Alert
Within Tier 2 accommodation has been given the go ahead to open.
People within Tier 2 are permitted to go on overnight stays with their household or support bubble.
Tier 3: Very High Alert
