The whole of the East Riding has been told it is on the "very high alert" level - meaning dozens of businesses will have to stay shut.

Mixing of different households indoors or outdoors in hospitality venues and private gardens is banned.

The rule of six applies in outdoor public spaces, such as parks.


Bars, pubs, restaurants and cafes will be able to offer takeaway services only.

Accommodation such as hotels, B and Bs, campsites, and guest houses must stay closed, along with indoor entertainment and tourist venues such as soft play centres, bingo halls, theatres, cinemas and bowling alleys.

Leisure and sports facilities can open but group exercise classes should not go ahead, and saunas and steam rooms should close

Public attendance at spectator sport or indoor performances and large business events are banned but elite sport events may continue to take place without spectators.

Places of worship remain open, but people must not attend with or socialise with anyone outside of their household or support bubble.

Weddings and funerals can go ahead with restrictions on the number of attendees – 15 people can attend wedding ceremonies, wedding receptions are not allowed, 30 people can attend funeral ceremonies, 15 people can attend linked commemorative events

Organised outdoor sport, physical activity and exercise classes can continue, however higher-risk contact activity should not take place

People should avoid travelling to other parts of the UK, including for overnight stays other than where necessary - such as for work, education, youth services, to receive medical treatment, or because of caring responsibilities.
