From 00:01 on Boxing Day, the Winchester district will be responding to COVID-19 by moving in to Tier 4 (Stay at Home). 


This means you must stay at home, except for essential purposes such as for work, medical reasons or to shop for food.

You cannot meet other people indoors, including over the Christmas and New year period, unless they are members of your household or part of your support bubble. Outdoors, Tier 4 residents can only meet one person from another household.

You should not travel into a Tier 4 area from another part of the UK, other than for reasons such as:

  • travel to work where you cannot work from home
  • travel to education and for caring responsibilities
  • to visit (including staying overnight with) those in your support bubble – or your childcare bubble for childcare
  • to attend hospital, GP and other medical appointments or visits where you have had an accident or are concerned about your health

Find out more about Tier 4 here.

Don’t forget – if you need health advice, the best place to visit is the NHS website.

Tiers will be reviewed on 30 December, as part of the wider review of all restrictions.
