FROM Monday, Bradford and the rest of West Yorkshire will enter Tier 3, the stricetest local restriction aiming to control the spread of Covid-19.

Many people in the district may be planning to go on holiday in November, whether that be abroad or elsewhere in the UK. 

People may also be planning on coming to Bradford on a mini-break to explore the district's rich cultural history.

But what do the Tier 3 rules mean for going away on your travels?

Tier 3 rules on going away

  • People are told they 'should avoid travelling outside the Very High alert area or entering a Very High alert level area, other than for work, education or for caring responsibilities, or to travel through as part of a longer journey'.
  • People are also being told they ' should avoid staying overnight in another part of the UK'.
  • You can travel to hotels or guest accommodation within the Tier 3 area, but can only go with your household or support bubble.

While these rules don't state you 'must' not travel out of the area or into a Very High area, and that you 'must' not stay in other areas of the country, the advice is clear that avoiding doing these things will be crucial to controlling the spread of the virus.

There is also no clear restriction on travelling abroad, but again the advice is to reduce travel as much as possible to control the spread of the virus.
