London Tier 2 Lockdown: The place Londoners cannot and may’t meet family and friends


London will conduct a Tier 2 lookdown from midnight on Friday evening, which means the capital will be subject to new restrictions to combat the spread of the coronavirus.

The new rules mean that Londoners can no longer connect with friends and family in the same way.

Under the current medium-risk Tier 1 coronavirus lockdown restrictions, people can meet family and friends as long as they adhere to the rule of six.

This includes private homes and all indoor venues such as pubs and restaurants.
