'Likely but not inevitable' Milton Keynes is moving towards Tier 2, says Council Leader

    It is 'likely but not inevitable' that Milton Keynes is moving towards Tier 2 coronavirus restrictions as cases in the city head past 100 cases per 100,000 for the first time, Council Leader Peter Marland has said.

    It comes as nearby Luton is set to move into the Tier 2 restrictions from 12.01am tomorrow morning.

    Tier 2 restrictions mean that residents would not be allowed to meet socially with friends and family outside their household or support bubble in any indoor setting.

    But all businesses can remain open under the 'High' level restrictions.

    The number of cases is currently 105 per 100,000 people in Milton Keynes, in comparison to 164.7 in Luton.

    Residents are being reminded to observe the rule of six, work from home if possible and help keep Milton Keynes inside Tier 1.

    In his weekly video update, Cllr Marland also revealed that there have been two moderate coronavirus outbreaks in local workplaces this week.

    Each of the outbreaks involved 'several' staff as well as having an impact on the businesses involved.

    Milton Keynes Council say they are increasing their level of enforcement activity in places not following the coronavirus guidelines.
