From Saturday 31 October, Oxford City will be moved into the government’s high alert level after a further rise in cases of COVID-19.
This means that if you either live in, or plan to visit the city, you’ll need to follow some new rules.
It’s important to remember that the higher alert level takes precedence over any other. So if you live in Oxford, you need to adhere to the high alert level restrictions even when you’re visiting a medium alert area. If you are visiting the city from another part of Oxfordshire, you also have to follow the high alert level rules.
What are the high alert rules?
- If you live in, or are visiting Oxford, you must not meet socially with anybody outside your household or support bubble in any indoor setting, whether at home or in a public place.
- You must not meet in a group of more than six outside, including in a garden or other outdoor space.
- You should try to reduce the number of journeys you make, and walk or cycle where possible. If taking public transport, you should plan ahead and avoid busy times and routes.
