MK Council Leader statement on Tier 2 announcement

Thursday 26 November 2020

 

MK Council Leader Pete Marland's statement on Tier 2 announcement for Milton Keynes:

“Milton Keynes, along with our neighbours in Bedfordshire, has been placed in Tier 2 of restrictions when the national lockdown ends.

Our current infection rates and hospital admissions did mean this was going to be the most likely outcome.

The main impact is that households are unable to mix indoors and certain restrictions will be placed on hospitality.

We must now work really hard to bring the rate down across MK. It is possible if this does not happen we will move towards an even higher tier and even more restrictions. However by working together, staying home if you can, taking care and respecting social distancing we can bring the rate down.”
