Are you in Tier 4? Find out the rules in your area with our postcode checker

Written by on 30 December 2020

England’s coronavirus restrictions will be toughened up from midnight, with millions more people moving into Tier 4.

Some 20 million more people will live under Tier 4 rules, meaning a total of 44 million people – 78% of England’s population – will be in the toughest tier.

More than six million people will move into England’s Tier 3, while no regions will remain in Tier 2.

Only the Isles of Scilly, with a population of just over 2,200 people, will be in Tier 1.

The situation in other UK nations varies.

Methodology: In order to compare restrictions in all the UK nations, Sky News has grouped areas based on the common core factors currently in place.

The tier systems in England and Scotland are different. Wales and Northern Ireland have not announced a tier system and they are currently applying restrictions nationally, unless they specify extra restrictions in some local areas.

The map and postcode checker currently group Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly together.
