  • The Telegraph published this video item, entitled “Boris Johnson’s Covid-19 winter plan: Gyms, shops and hairdressers can reopen but tougher tiers” – below is their description.

    The strengthened new set of tiers that come into force after lockdown lifts next week will last until March next year, Boris Johnson has confirmed.  The Prime Minister’s Covid Winter Plan sees the end of the ‘stay at home’ instruction, and the reopening of shops, gyms, personal care and the leisure sector. Collective worship, weddings and outdoor sports can resume and people will no longer be limited to seeing one other person outdoors, as the rule of six returns once more.   Hospitality can reopen in the two lowest tiers, with the 10pm curfew tweaked into a 10pm last orders.  In tier three, sales are restricted to take-aways and delivery.  Mr Johnson is hoping to avert a Conservative rebellion as he unveils plans for a “toughened” three-tiered system to come into place after lockdown.  The Prime Minister is addressing MPs remotely as he continues to self-isolate in Downing Street, as he looks to win over the growing number of Tories concerned about his erosion of civil liberties.  Read the latest here: https://www.telegraph.co.uk/politics/2020/11/23/boris-johnson-news-lockdown-update-sunak-spending-review-brexit/ Subscribe to The Telegraph on YouTube ► https://bit.ly/3idrdLH
