England gets split into stricter lockdown tiers – have your say in our survey

1 min read

As the government introduces new, harsher lockdown tiers, the Daily Star wants to hear your views.

Our survey gives you the chance to express what you think about the rules. Do you agree with them? Are you in the right tier? Are the restrictions tough enough?

Health Secretary Matt Hancock announced tier allocations in the Commons on Thursday (November 26).

Many areas in England will be in the Tier 2 or Tier 3 category – and only three will be in Tier 1 when the system kicks in on December 2 when national lockdown ends.

Earlier this evening, Prime Minister Boris Johnson stressed the nation must adhere to the new rules – or be faced with another full lockdown in the New Year.

He said: “If we ease off now we risk losing control over this virus all over again, casting aside our hard-won gains and forcing us back into a new year national lockdown with all the damage that would mean," he said.

"I know this will bring a great deal of heartache and frustration especially for our vital hospitality sector.

"I really wish it were otherwise but if we are going to keep schools open, as we must, then our options in bearing down on the disease are necessarily limited.”
