The key points for England in full
From Thursday, November 5 until Wednesday, December 2
🔴 You must stay at home
🔴 The only permitted reasons for leaving home will be: for education, for work, if you cannot work from home, for exercise and recreation outdoors, for medical reasons, to shop for food and essentials, to care for others.
🔴 Non-essential shops will close.
🔴 Schools and universities will remain open.
🔴 Pubs, bars and restaurants will close, but takeaways will be allowed to stay open.
🔴 Support bubbles will still be allowed and children can move homes if their parents are separated.
The key difference between the first and second lockdown is that this one has a set cut-off time.
The lockdown will be subject to a debate and a vote in the House of Commons. The vote is likely on Wednesday. The Prime Minister has already spoken to Labour leader Sir Keir Starmer about the measures.
