Leicester was made subject to the UK’s first local lockdown in June
Leicester and Leicestershire will be subject to the toughest tier of restrictions after the national lockdown ends on 2 December.
The city and county will move from tier two to three, meaning very high risk, the government announced.
It means household mixing is banned and pubs and restaurants will close except for delivery and takeaways.
The city and parts of the county were subject to the UK’s first local lockdown in June.
The neighbouring county of Rutland will go into tier two of the government’s three-tier system.
Leicester has been subject to some level of coronavirus restrictions since the first national lockdown in March.
The government has set out the reasoning behind the tier decisions for each area.
In a written ministerial statement, the government said of Leicester and Leicestershire: “Improvements have been seen in overall case rates in all but one lower-tier local authority, but remain very high at 355 per 100,000, including in over 60s at 250 per 100k. The pressure on the local NHS remains very high.”
Health Secretary Matt Hancock told the Commons: “I know how tough this is, both for areas that have been in restrictions for a long time like Leicester and Greater Manchester, and also for areas where cases have risen sharply.”
The system will be regularly reviewed – with the first scheduled for 16 December.
The new allocations will put some areas under significantly tighter restrictions than before the second lockdown started.
Places like Market Harborough and Lutterworth have managed to remain in tier one since the system was first introduced, but they along with the rest of the county will go into tier three.
Reacting to the news, the county’s director of public health Mike Sandys said: “Over the past few days, rates have started to fall and we’ve made some progress. But it’s important to put this into perspective.
“Figures are over 20% down compared to this time last week but they’re still worse than the day we went into lockdown.
“Leicestershire’s average is significantly higher than the national level so there is still work to do.”

That’s tough news for those here and means it has been eight months since people have not been allowed to have family and friends in their homes.
