New Covid-19 Restrictions for our Region

Calling all shoppers!

From midnight Thursday 17 September, there are new restrictions for our region. As rates of infection continue to rise we must all work together to protect our most vulnerable.

We are yet to receive the regulations outlining the advice, guidance and legislation in full. We will further communicate implications for our residents and businesses as soon as we can.

New restrictions include:

  • Venues including pubs, restaurants and cafes to close from 10pm to 5am
  • Venues providing food and drink restricted to table service only
  • You must not meet with those outside your household or support bubble
