Tier 3 rules will soon be in effect across seven percent of England after the classification was extended to new areas in the country this week. Tier 3 lockdown areas are areas with “very high” levels of coronavirus infection and therefore involve the strictest measures. Express.co.uk has compiled a map to show which areas are now in Tier 3.

What is the three-tier system?

The Government’s traffic light system sees parts of the country categorised depending on their rates of infection.

Local lockdown classifications are determined by the three-tier system.

Tier 1 is the medium level which covers most of the country and consists of the current national rules including the rule of six and the closure of hospitality businesses at 10pm.

Tier 2 is the high level which covers many areas under local restrictions and prevents people from mixing with other households indoors and also mandates the rule of six.

Tier 3 is the very high level where transmission rates of the virus are at the highest levels causing the most concern.
