Parts of Surrey face Tier 2 COVID measures

137,000 people living in Elmbridge, Surrey will move to Tier 2 COVID measures from Saturday. There are currently three possible Tiers 1-3, all reflecting the number of COVID-19 cases in any given area. This change was announced today by the Health Secretary, Matt Hancock MP.

“I know that these measures are not easy but I also know that they are vital,”
– Matt Hancock MP

These new measures come as other areas of the country such as Liverpool go into local lockdown. Areas of North London and Essex will also be moving to Tier 2 this weekend.
