In their latest newsletter to residents in Blaby District, the District Council reminds them that the District is in the Medium (Tier 1) group – which is for areas where national restrictions continue to be in place. This means for now there is no change across the district of Blaby.
- You must not socialise in groups larger than six, indoors or outdoors (other than where a legal exemption applies)
- Pubs/Bars/Restaurants can only serve food and drink while seated, and must close between 10pm and 5am
- Takeaways can continue to offer food after 10pm as long as this is through delivery service, click-and-collect or drive-through
You can find the full information about the Medium level of restrictions, as well as any exemptions on the Government’s website.
The newsletter reports: “We’ve seen a continued increase in coronavirus cases, both locally and nationally. You can take a look at the local figures on the Leicestershire County Council website. The government also publish data on their dashboard and cases can also viewed on the interactive map.
As cases continue to rise, now more than ever it is important that you limit your contact with others, to stop the spread of the virus and reduce the risk of having High (Tier 2) restrictions being imposed on us. It’s down to all of us to take responsibility and control the virus.
Leicester City and Oadby and Wigston areas will be under the High alert level rules from Wednesday 14 October. All other areas of Leicestershire will be under the Medium alert rules.
