Will there be a new tier 5 coronavirus level introduced in the UK?
Tier 4 may not be enough to contain the coronavirus. There may be a requirement to introduce new more restricter levels to force people to stay at home. There is already talk that a new Tier 5 level may be introduced.
The current highest level is Tier 4. Residents in Tier 4 must stay at home, apart from limited exemptions set out in law. Non-essential retail, indoor gyms and leisure facilities, and personal care services must close. People must work from home if they can, but may travel to work if this is not possible, for example in the construction and manufacturing sectors. People should not enter or leave tier 4 areas, and tier 4 residents must not stay overnight away from home. Individuals can only meet one person from another household in an outdoor public space.
