National Lockdown takes effect

Amber Valley, like the rest of England, is now in a lockdown and will remain so until 2 December.

This action has been taken by the Government to control rapidly rising COVID-19 case numbers across the whole of the UK, and in other countries.

The single most important action we can all take to fight coronavirus is to stay at home, to protect the NHS and save lives.

When we reduce our day-to-day contact with other people, we reduce the spread of the infection. That is why, you must:

  1. Stay at home, except for specific purposes.
  2. Avoid meeting people you do not live with, except for specific purposes.
  3. Close certain businesses and venues.

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.
