Three Rivers placed in Tier 2 – High alert level from 2 December

26th November 2020


The government announced today that from 2 December Three Rivers and the whole of Hertfordshire will be placed in the Tier 2 - High alert level of the revised three-tiered system of local Covid-19 restrictions. 

In response, Cllr Sarah Nelmes, Leader of Three Rivers District Council, said: “I want to thank residents in Three Rivers who have continued to play their part over the past month by sticking to the national restrictions. 

“Being in Tier 2 will bring concerns for many, including the continued need to avoid socialising with anyone you do not live with, or who is not in your support bubble. Local businesses, especially in the hospitality sector, also continue to suffer.  

“It’s therefore crucial that we continue to follow the rules in order to keep infection rates low so that we can move to Tier 1 as soon as possible.

“The virus continues to circulate in our community so it’s essential we keep up the good work in the run up to Christmas. I make no apology for reminding people of the need to follow the basic rules of social distancing, wearing face coverings, washing your hands regularly and getting a test if you have symptoms.”
