From today, 5 November - 2 December 2020 West Yorkshire will join the whole of England in a National Lockdown.

We must stay home and only leave the house for: essential food shopping, medical purposes, exercise, education and work, if we cannot work from home.

More information, and full details of exemptions are listed on the gov.uk website.

These new measures will reduce the growth rate of the virus, which will:

  • prevent the NHS from being overwhelmed
  • ensure schools, colleges and universities can stay open
  • ensure that as many people as possible can continue to work
