How Government will decide who’s in Tier 1, 2 or 3 – as list shows latest Covid rates

England will return to a tiered system of coronavirus restrictions next week when the national lockdown ends.

The Government will announce on Thursday which places will be in Tiers 1, 2 and 3, with Prime Minister Boris Johnson having the final say on all decisions.

London and Liverpool are hoping to avoid the strictest Tier 3 measures, including the closure of pubs and takeways, but most of the country is likely to be in Tier 2 or higher.

Only a few places are set to be in Tier 1, where it will still be allowed to socialise indoors.

The tiers will be reviewed every two weeks, with the first check to be made on December 16 – a week before every part of the UK has a five-day break from some of the restrictions for Christmas.



Boris Johnson has the final say over which places are in which tier

What information will the Government use to determine restrictions in each area?

The five factors include case detection rates in all age groups, case detection rates in the over 60s and the rate at which cases are rising or falling.

The two other measures are the positivity rate – the number of positive cases detected as a percentage of tests taken – and pressure on the NHS, including current and projected occupancy.

But Downing Street has declined to give any further details on the indicators, nor any estimate of the thresholds.

Why are there not rigid thresholds?

The Government has said it will need to maintain flexibility to weigh the indicators against each other – such as whether hospital capacity in neighbouring areas is lower.



Christmas shopping will resume on December 2 regardless of Tier

Another example given in the Coronavirus Winter Plan is that case detection rates would need to be weighed against whether the spread of the virus is localised to particular communities.

«Given these sensitivities, it is not possible to set rigid thresholds for these indicators, as doing so would result in poorer quality decisions,» the plan states.

What about economic factors?

These are not listed among the key criteria but Downing Street said the Government was always aware of the effect of restrictions on the economy.

The Prime Minister’s official spokesman, when asked if economic factors would be considered, said on Tuesday: «Ministers have always been cognisant of the economic impact.»

What do we know so far about what tier places will be in?

The Mayor of Greater Manchester Andy Burnham said it was «more likely than not» the area would be made subject to Tier 3 restrictions.

He said although infection numbers in Greater Manchester were still high, the rates were falling.



Greater Manchester Mayor Andy Burnham said the area is likely to stay in Tier 3

He added: «If things continue in this direction at the rate at which we are seeing change in Greater Manchester, I would want to ask the Government for a serious review of Greater

Manchester’s position at the first review of tiering arrangements which is scheduled to take place two weeks from now.»

Liverpool City Region mayor Steve Rotheram said he hoped the area – which was the first to enter the highest tier last time – would not return to Tier 3 restrictions.

He said: «The progress we’ve made since we were put in Tier 3 is remarkable – we’ve gone from having two areas with infection rates of about 750 per 100k to 180 across the city region.»

Meanwhile, Lancashire’s council leaders have submitted a proposal to the Government to divide the county into two different tiers when the lockdown ends.

A request has been made for Hyndburn, Rossendale, Burnley, Pendle and Preston to go into Tier 3 restrictions while Fylde, Wyre, Lancaster, Chorley, South Ribble, Ribble Valley and West Lancashire would go into Tier 2.

And London mayor Sadiq Khan said it would be the «right and sensible decision» for the capital to be placed in Tier 2, as he warned that Tier 3 would be a «hammer blow» to businesses.

Latest infection rates for everywhere in England

Of course, one key factor is how many people have caught coronavirus in any area in the last week.

The latest data here from PA, for the seven days to November 21, with the second number showing the cases in the week up to November 14, shows the current number of cases per 100,000 people for every part of the country.

The Government has not specified what number the infection rate must be to move up or down the tier system.

But clearly areas such as Swale and Thanet in Kent, Hull and Stoke-on-Trent look likely to have severe measures imposed.

While some rural areas in Dorset, Cornwall, Cambridgeshire and Suffolk may be deemed to have infection rates low enough that nothing more than Tier 1 is needed.
