Covid 19 Update
It has now been announced that Leeds will enter Tier 3 when the National Lockdown ends at midnight on Tuesday 1st December.
Current national restriction rules are still in place until then.
I know that this is disappointing and that people will, understandably, be frustrated by this news. Thank you for all you are doing to help manage the pandemic, as I know that this is challenging.
I urge everyone to continue their efforts and to social distance, regularly wash your hands and adhere to the government guidance.
What this means for you
Whilst details of regulations won’t be confirmed until next week, we understand that the announcement for Leeds means that:
15 guests for weddings, 30 for funerals. No wedding receptions
Indoor entertainment venues closed; outdoor events should not take place (other than drive in events)
Advice is against travel out of the Tier 3 area other than where necessary for work or education or another exception.
My office remains open as usual. To get in touch you can email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 0113 255 2311. I am
currently receiving an unprecedented amount of emails and phone calls at this time, and someone will get back to you.
