Dudley Borough - COVID 19 Tier 3 Update From DMBC 21/12/20

Category: News & Written by simon On December-21-2020 13:11:19

In Tier 3 areas, you may now see a maximum of two other households (your ‘Christmas bubble’) only on Christmas Day (25 December). You cannot see anyone from a Tier 4 area.

Everyone is asked to think very carefully about the risks and only form a Christmas bubble if you feel you absolutely need to. Wherever possible, discuss alternatives to meeting up in person.

It is vital that we each take personal responsibility this Christmas to limit the spread of the virus and protect our loved ones, particularly if they are vulnerable. One in three people with coronavirus (COVID-19) have no symptoms and will be spreading it without realising it. So the safest way to celebrate Christmas this year is with your household or existing support bubble in your home. The more people you see, the more likely it is that you will catch or spread coronavirus.

The updated Government guidance on Christmas bubbles, together with translated versions, can be found at:
