Leicester Lockdown Boundaries...

Leicester Lockdown Boundaries...

Posted: Tue, 30 Jun 2020 10:02 by Cheryl Small

By Harborough FM News..

'A detailed map of the Leicester lock-down area has been released and shows no parts of the Harborough District are included.

It was announced last night coronavirus restrictions will remain in place in the city and suburbs, as part of the UK's first localised lockdown.

The areas of Leicestershire included in the localised lockdown are:

All areas of Oadby and Wigston

In Blaby District:
• Braunstone Town (including Fosse Park)
• Glenfield
• Glen Parva
• Leicester Forest East (East of the M1)
• Thorpe Astley More »

In Charnwood:
• Birstall
• Thurmaston

Leicestershire County Council says it is currently working on a postcode checker for those who live on borders and are unsure if they are included.

Non-essential shops in the lockdown area will close today and schools will close from Thursday and all non-essential travel to and from Leicester will be banned.

People living in the affected areas are being urged to "stay at home as much as they can" and the nationwide easing of lockdown planned for July 4th does not apply to them, he said.

A walk-in testing centre is also being set up in the city for people with symptoms, with extra funding going to all Leicestershire councils to help support businesses and those forced to self-isolate.

The relaxation of rules for people who are shielding in the area – planned for 6 July – cannot go ahead either.

Leicester accounts for 10% of all coronavirus cases reported across the country over the past week, with 135 per 100,000 people.

Mr Hancock says the measures will be reviewed in two weeks and will not be in place "any longer than necessary"' » Less
