Department of Health and Social Security: Leicester local restrictions

On 19 September the government updated the guidance to add the borough of Oadby and Wigston to the areas affected by these restrictions.

The guidance  has also been updated in line with guidance for other areas in England that have local restrictions, for example on team sport, shielding, childcare, and face coverings in schools and colleges.

As from Tuesday 22 September Oadby and Wigston (borough council area) will affected by the Leicester local restrictions.

If you live in the affected local areas, you must not:

  • Host people you do not live with in your home or garden, unless they’re in your support bubble
  • Meet people you do not live with in their home or garden, whether inside or outside the affected local areas, unless they’re in your support bubble

Your household is only the people you live with and any support bubble.

A support bubble is where a household with one adult joins with another household (on an exclusive basis). Households within a bubble can still visit each other, stay overnight, and visit public places together.

The next review of this guidance  will take place by 25 September.
