    - England will be placed into “medium”, “high” and “very high” alert levels under the new restrictions
  • - Areas listed as medium will be subject to the same rules as those which currently apply across the country, such as the rule of six and the 10pm hospitality curfew.
  • - In the high alert level, which will apply to most of the areas already subject to restrictions, household mixing will be banned indoors. Support bubbles will still be permitted, however
  • - The very high alert level will apply to areas causing the most concern, and social mixing will be prohibited indoors and in private gardens.
  • - Pubs and bars will be closed in the very high alert level areas unless they can operate as a restaurant. People will also be advised against travel in and out of the areas
  • - Public Health Dorset said the county is currently in the 'lowest medium tier'
