Rules on salons reopening in new 3 tier Covid restrictions explained

Hairdressers and barbers were forced to close on 5 November when England was plunged back into a four week lockdown

The Prime Minister Boris Johnson has announced his winter Covid-19 strategy with new restrictions beginning once the national lockdown is lifted on 2 December.

The rules will inlude a tougher local tiers system, while the 10pm curfew for restaurants and pubs will be pushed back to 11pm and gyms and shops will be allowed to reopen.

Will England’s lockdown definitely end in December?

Boris Johnson has confirmed that lockdown in England will end on Wednesday 2 December, with tiers to be introduced in a uniform way.

However the Prime Minister said the new three-tiered system of rules will be tougher than those applied before the November lockdown.

He warned that despite the easing of restrictions in some areas, “I can’t say Christmas will be normal” as he called for people to follow the rules through winter in anticipation of a Covid-19 vaccine being rolled out.

Hairdressers and barber shops were able to open from 4 July, but with extra safety measures in place.

What is set to reopen once lockdown ends?

Gyms and non-essential retail will be allowed to stay open in every tier, to try to keep businesses afloat in the run-up to Christmas.

The 10pm curfew for pubs and restaurants will be pushed back to 11pm. However, in tier two establishments will only be allowed to serve alcohol alongside a meal. In tier three, they will only be able to offer takeaway.

What about hairdressers?

Hairdressers and barbers were forced to temporarily close in March, leaving many people across the UK forced to get creative by cutting their own hair at home.

They were allowed to reopen on 4 July with extra safety measures put in place.

The second national lockdown meant these businesses had to shut their doors again from 5 November.

It has now been confirmed that personal care – such as hairdressers and beauty salons – will be able to reopen in all tiers, after lockdown is lifted on 2 December.

The Government’s winter strategy will come into force once lockdown ends on 2 December.

How will this tier system be different?

More areas are expected to enter the higher end of the system, and restrictions in each of the areas are expected to be altered.

Ministers will announce on Thursday which tier each area will enter.
