Breaking News ! As parts of the country face tougher coronavirus restrictions with the introduction of the tier system, Cambridgeshire's infection rates have continued to increase. While Cambridgeshire is still classed as Tier One, the least severe, if infection rates continue to climb restrictions could be tightened across the county. Peterborough has had a tough battle with coronavirus for months now, however as it's a unitary authority it could be given separate restrictions and lockdown rules to the rest of Cambridgeshire. Infection rates in central Cambridge have risen sharply and are creeping toward 200. This is currently in line with those in Cheshire West, which is currently under tier two restrictions. However, Cambridgeshire still remains in the Tier One, 'medium' alert level. Map of recent infection rates across the UK Current tier one lockdown rules This means that the restrictions in place are the more general baseline ones. Pubs, bars and restaurants must close their doors by 10pm, and households can still mix indoors as long as they adhere to social distancing and the rule of six.
