The Government has placed all of England into a new National Lockdown, with restrictions set to begin easing from March 8.
Until then, you must not leave, or be outside of your home except where necessary. You may leave the home to:
Colleges, primary and secondary schools will remain open only for vulnerable children and the children of critical workers. All other children will learn remotely until February half term. Early Years settings remain open.
Higher Education provision will remain online until mid February for all except future critical worker courses.
If you do leave home for a permitted reason, you should always stay local in the village, town, or part of the city where you live. You may leave your local area for a legally permitted reason, such as for work.
If you are clinically extremely vulnerable you should only go out for medical appointments, exercise or if it is essential. You should not attend work.
We are working with the Local Resilience Forums, bodies led by the local councils and emergency services within Tees Valley, which exist to coordinate responses to emergencies
Members of the public, businesses, employers and employees are being asked to follow Government, NHS and Public Health England guidelines which can be found at gov.uk/coronavirus
