Reading will be in Tier 2 from Wednesday 2 December. Until then the same lockdown rules apply as you have followed for the last three weeks. The rest of Berkshire is also in Tier 2, except for Slough which is in Tier 3.
The move to Tier 2 will cause all of us further challenges at a time of year when we would ordinarily be mixing with friends and family, and for some local businesses who face more hardship at a vital time of year for them.It is important that from Wednesday, everyone sticks to the Tier 2 rules so that we see a decline in the case numbers and can, in time, move to a lower tier of restriction.
