New restrictions have been introduced in west Cheshire in response to a sharp increase in the number of COVID-19 cases in the borough.

Organisations in the voluntary and community sector may be exempt from some of the restrictions because of the services they deliver and people they support, but it is important to follow the new restrictions closely in the community and outside work.

Key messages

  • People must not socialise with anybody outside of their household or support bubble in any indoor setting, whether at home or in a public place.
  • People must not socialise in a group of more than six outside, including in a garden or other spaces like beaches or parks.
  • Businesses and venues can continue to operate, in a COVID-secure manner, other than those which remain closed in law.
  • Certain businesses selling food or drink on their premises are required to close between 10pm and 5am. Businesses and venues selling food for consumption off the premises can continue to do so after 10pm as long as this is through delivery service, click-and-collect or drive-through.
  • Schools, universities and places of worship remain open.
  • Weddings and funerals can go ahead with restrictions on the number of attendees.
  • Exercise classes and organised sport can continue to take place outdoors. These will only be permitted indoors if it is possible for people to avoid mixing with people they do not live with (or share a support bubble with).
  • People can continue to travel to venues or amenities which are open, for work or to access education, but should look to reduce the number of journeys they make where possible.

    Full details about the new restrictions in west Cheshire can be found on the Council's website. There is also more information about the local alert levels on the Government's website.
