Coronavirus update – 12 October 2020


Following discussions with Leaders and MPs across the region, the Government has confirmed that Northumberland will be subject to the ‘HIGH’ level tier of national restrictions that will come into force from Wednesday 14 October – as with all other areas, this will be kept under close review by Government and Public Health England and subject to change at any time in line with case numbers, hospital admissions and local hospital capacity.

More information on this can be found on the Government’s website here. The Government have also provided the below poster that summarises the restrictions within the high tier.
