New Year’s Eve will be very different this year. Instead of ringing in the new year with friends and family down the local, most of the UK will be spending it at home. Official government advice states that coronavirus restrictions will not be lifted for New Year’s Eve.
The 5-day Christmas bubble will end on December 28th, which leaves millions of Yorkshire folk in tier three & tier two. We will be celebrating New Year’s a little different this year, as people must stick to the rules of their tier.
Issued over the weekend, the guidance states: “You must follow the rules on where you can go and who you can meet, including on New Year’s Eve… Your Christmas bubble will no longer apply. Check the rules for your tier.”
Yorkshire is either in tier two or three – which means no mixing of households, and no meeting up in the pub with friends. In tier two restrictions people can go to the pub with their household, and in tier three restrictions pubs are closed, but people can only order takeaway drinks from the pub.
There is a chance of moving into a different tier on 16th December, so fingers crossed that Yorkshire will see restriction ease.
