Tier 4 - Latest Government Covid-19 Restrictions


The Prime Minister has introduced a new Tier 4, and new Covid-19 restrictions for any area in this Tier, that has come into effect from 20 December 2020. 

Medway is one of the areas that has been placed in Tier 4, so we have collated some information that might be useful to you:

Full Government information and guidance on Tier 4 can be accessed on the Gov.uk website.

If you need to check what Tier an area is in, you can use the Government's local restriction checking tool.

Medway Council have published a Tier 4 information page on their website detailing changes in their services and you can also find up to date information about local Covid-19 data and the support that is available locally on their dedicated Medway Council Coronavirus web page.

Medway Voluntary Action remain committed to supporting the voluntary sector to function through the Covid restrictions and they can find information about support and services available to them on MVA's dedicated Covid-19 pages and Organisation Support pages. As information comes into them, MVA are also updating their directory of local VCS support organisations and services available to local residents - if you have any update on your services that you would like included in these directories please contact MVA.

What is the latest advice about charities and volunteers in Tier 4?

According to the Government's advice page for Tier 4:

Stay at home
If you live in Tier 4 you must not leave or be outside of your home or garden except where you have a ‘reasonable excuse’. A reasonable excuse includes:
Work and volunteering
You can leave home for work purposes, where your place of work remains open and where you cannot work from home (including if your job involves working in other people’s homes).

Where and when you can meet in larger groups
There are still circumstances in which you are allowed to meet others from outside your household or support bubble in larger groups, but this should not be for socialising and only for permitted purposes. A full list of these circumstances will be included in the regulations, and includes:
for work, or providing voluntary or charitable services.
