Council urges borough to observe Tier 4 rules

Nuneaton and Bedworth Borough Council has urged residents to stick to the latest guidance regarding Coronavirus.

The Borough moved into the Tier Four ‘Stay at home’ category for virus restrictions at 00:01 on New Year’s Eve.

Leader of Nuneaton and Bedworth Borough Council, Cllr Julie Jackson, has urged residents to follow the latest guidance from New Year's Eve and in the days to come.

She said: "The government's action to place our area into Tier Four means more restrictions on us all. The latest increase in the number of cases shows that we must continue to do the right thing over the days and weeks to come. I urge everyone in Nuneaton and Bedworth to continue to help protect one another by not mixing with other households, washing our hands regularly, wearing a face mask where appropriate and social distancing whenever we can.

"Better days are ahead with the development of the new vaccines and the vaccination programme. This gives us all hope that things will change and that the year ahead will be better for us all. I hope everyone can take some comfort from that and stay safe over this New Year period."

The restrictions mean a number of local businesses will again need to close or significantly reduce their activities.

Cllr Jackson added: “We are determined to continue to support local businesses through these difficult times and will endeavour to make payment to qualifying businesses as soon as possible. There is help available, and we will do our best to offer support in line with government schemes that are now in place.

“Please continue to check our business pages and social media for further updates.”
