Eastbourne and Wealden stay in Tier 2 and are NOT in Tier 4.

LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM - DECEMBER 2:  Britain's Prime Minister Boris Johnson speaks during a news conference on the ongoing situation with the coronavirus disease (COVID-19), at Downing Street on December 2, 2020 in London, England. The UK Government announced the Pfizer/BioNTech Covid Vaccine has been approved for use in the UK with rollout expected as early as next week. High up on the priority list will be residents and staff of care homes, people over the age of 80 and people with underlying health problems.  (Photo by John Sibley-WPA Pool/Getty Images)

Boris Johnson has issued a new “stay at home” order covering London and much of the south and east of England, and dramatically curtailed plans for Christmas mixing nationwide, in response to a new fast-spreading strain of coronavirus.

For clarity, we remain in Tier 2.

Just days after reaffirming the festive “bubble” plan and claiming it would be “inhuman” to cancel Christmas, the prime minister announced the creation of a new, stricter “tier 4”.

Only households living outside this area will now be allowed to mix for Christmas in England – and then only for a single day, 25 December, with long-distance travel discouraged.
