A reminder on Tier restrictions

The BEF has provided a reminder of what residents may or may not do in Tiers 4 and 3.

TIER 4 – STAY AT HOME
  • You must not leave or be outside your home, except for where you have a specific purpose (work, essential activities, education, etc) or a reasonable excuse (care of horses, exercise and recreation, etc)
  • Outdoor leisure and sports facilities may continue to stay open for individual exercise, for people within your household, support bubble, or with one other person from another household. Those from other tiers should not travel into a tier four area for the purpose of exercise/sport
  • Organised outdoor sport can continue for under-18s and disabled people only – all other activity should be suspended. (Please note, the use of indoor/covered arenas for equestrian activity has previously been classified as outdoor activity in England and Scotland)
  • You can’t mix with other households indoors, or in private gardens and pub gardens
  • Avoid travelling outside a tier 4 area and, if you need to travel for legally permitted reasons, you should stay local. Overnight stays are not permitted.

TIER 3 – VERY HIGH ALERT

  • Leisure and sports facilities may continue to stay open
  • Organised outdoor sport, and physical activity and exercise classes can continue, however higher-risk contact activity should not take place (Please note, the use of indoor/covered arenas for equestrian activity has previously been classified as outdoor activity in England and Scotland)
  • You can’t mix with other households indoors, or in private gardens and pub gardens
  • You can meet in a group of up to six in other outdoor spaces, such as parks, beaches or countryside
  • Avoid travelling to other parts of the UK, including for overnight stays other than where necessary, such as for work, education, youth services, to receive medical treatment, or because of caring responsibilities. You can travel through other areas as part of a longer journey. You may travel out of a tier 3 area for individual exercise.
