Tier 4 Rules in London: A Complete Nightmare at the Time of Christmas


It is going to be a nightmare for the people of England that they cannot greet many people on the day of Christmas eve as the Christmas bubbles have been shortened from five days (for a five-day period from 23rd to 27th December 2020) to only one, that is, Christmas Day – for the rest of the country as the whole nation is entering a new ‘Tier 4’.

It is being said that non-essential shops will remain closed for the entire two weeks in the new Tier 4 areas in London, and people have been strictly ordered to remain inside their homes unless there is an emergency like shopping essentials items, for medical reasons, childcare purposes, or performing outdoor exercises.

It is further requested from people to work from home where possible, not to move in or out of the new Tier 4 areas and, not to stay overnight away from home. Earlier the ‘rule of six’ in parks and other public areas was made public before the announcement of Tier 4, but now it has been shortened to ‘two people’ from different households. Furthermore, other places like salons, spas gyms, and cinemas will remain shut after the major announcement of the day.UK Approves the First Covid-19 Vaccine in The World – Pfizer-BioNTech

A list of all the areas under Tier 4 has been issued:

  • Berkshire
  • Essex (excluding Colchester, Uttlesford, and Tendring)
  • Surrey (excluding Waverley)
  • Kent
  • Hertfordshire
  • Buckinghamshire
  • All 32 London boroughs and the city of London
  • Bedford, Central Bedfordshire, Milton Keynes, Luton, Peterborough
  • The boroughs of Gosport, Havant, Portsmouth, Rother, and Hastings

Prime Minister Boris Johnson requested the citizens of the nation not to step outside their homes and stay local as much as they can and also said “those in Tier 4 will not be permitted to travel abroad apart from limited exceptions, for example, work purpose.”, but also delivered great news at the end that worship places will always remain open in Tier 4.
