The Government has today announced the Tiering structure that will be applied to areas across England once the Lockdown ends on 2 December.
Rutland has been placed in Tier 2: High Alert.
“We recognise that this allocation may be disappointing for residents. Although the rate of infections in our area has been falling, sadly this allocation was inevitable and reflects the enormous pressure our local health services is currently under due to the virus.“We have been lobbying Government to ensure that we were not placed in a higher category to reflect the case rates in areas we border. “It is now vital that we all pull together and work hard to ensure that this allocation is a temporary measure.” Councillor Oliver Hemsley, Leader of Rutland County Council
The Tier allocation will be reviewed in 14 days.
