WEEKLY UPDATE 27 NOVEMBER 2020 – 每周疫情快讯 2020年11月27日

There will be several changes in the next few weeks. The national lockdown will be lifted and every region in England will be placed into one of the 3 Tiers. Birmingham was in Tier 2 High Alert level before lockdown – from 2nd December, it will be placed in Tier 3. 

For a 5 day period over Christmas, the Tiers will be lifted and replaced with the ‘Christmas Bubble’ system.  What happens from 28th December will depend on the case rates – we will keep you informed. 

27.11.2020 – 01.12.2020 National Lockdown continues 

  • No social mixing between households 
  • Limited social mixing in outdoor public spaces
  • Work from home if possible

02.12.2020 -16.12.2020 Tier 3 applies

  • The Government has announced that Birmingham will be in Tier 3 Very High Alert level from 2.12.2020. 
  • This is subject to MPs voting on 1 December.
  • The Tiers will be reviewed after 14 days. 
    • See chart below for the Tier 3 restrictions. 

16.12.2020 – 23.12.2020 To be confirmed

This will depend on the 2-week review

23.12.2020 – 27.12.2020 ‘Christmas Bubbles’

  • 3 households can form a ‘Christmas Bubble’ during the period 23-27th December. In England, a pre-exising support bubble counts as one household – potentially 6 housholds (ie 3 Support Bubbles) can form a Christmas Bubble.
  • Households cannot swap between Christmas Bubbles – once a bubble is formed, that combination is fixed for the 5-day period.  There is no limit on household size. 
  • Christmas Bubbles can mix indoors including private gardens, stay overnight in each other’s homes and visit places of worship and outdoor public spaces together. 
  • Travel restrictions are lifted so you can visit each other. 
    • People who are self-isolating must NOT form a Christmas Bubble. 
    • If anyone tests positive or displays symptoms up to 48 hours after the Christmas Bubble last meets, everyone in the Bubble must self-isolate.

28.12.2020 onwards – To be confirmed 

What happens after Christmas will depend on whether household mixing causes a spike in cases, especially if the NHS is overwhelmed. We may revert to Tier 3 or there may be another national lockdown. 

Should you form a Christmas Bubble?

The Government has relaxed the rules for 5 days so families and friends can get together without penalty. You must decide whether to form a Christmas Bubble based on the risk factors for your household/support bubble. 

Remember that anyone can catch Covid-19 but some groups are at higher risk of complications and of dying if they contract the virus. These are: 

  • People over 80
  • People under 80 with long term health conditions
  • Men 
  • Ethnic minorities especially South Asian
  • Other risk factors include obesity, smoking
