Latest Covid-19 restrictions in Cheshire East

From Wednesday 14 October, your area will be under local restrictions, in addition to the measures which apply across England. It will be in the high alert (tier two) category.

Meeting friends and family

You must not meet people you don’t live with in any indoor setting – whether at home or in a public place – unless they are part of your support or childcare bubble. You must not socialise in a group of more than six outside, including in a garden or other spaces like beaches or parks, and you must follow social distancing rules.

Going to work

You should work at home if possible. If you cannot do this, you can return to your workplace but your employer must make arrangements for you to work safely.

Schools and nurseries

Schools and nurseries remain open. In schools and colleges that teach Year 7 and above, face coverings should be worn by adults and pupils when moving around the premises.

Leisure time

Pubs, bars and restaurants close at 22:00 BST. They are restricted to table service only. Face coverings must be worn by customers when they are not eating or drinking.


Shops are allowed to open. You must wear a face covering in shops, supermarkets and shopping centres.


You must wear a face covering on public transport, in taxis and private hire vehicles. You could be fined if you don’t. Some people do not have to wear a face covering for age, health, or disability reasons.
