Apparently they're gearing up for this next.
Sooner or later it'll be 'Tier 10- shot on the spot if you leave your home.'

Completely ridiculous. I’m assuming t4 will be not allowed to meet anyone anywhere .

Frazzled2207 Mon 26-Oct-20 14:12:32

Agree. It sounds horrendous but I don’t blame the government for planning ahead should the current measures not work.
I’d hope it would be for specific small areas and/or time limited. Tier 3 is bad but probably bearable (just).

Will Tier 4 be basically what everyone in England lived under on about 1 April?
I guess Tier5 will be Spanish rules on 1 April 2020.
Tier 6 will be Wuhan conditions on 1 March.

Liverpool are apparently considering their own tier 4. Scotland has 5 tiers now.

Matt Hancock on R4 this morning said that nothing was ruled out.

its because people are NOT following the rules and the rules are not enforced . I am Tier 3, we have been in some kind of lockdown most of this year and the cases are rising not falling. The rules seem to mean nothing to people up here. We need a strong clampdown and proper lockdown.

I’m in GM. I don’t disagree but what makes you think people will begin to listen if there’s an even stricter lockdown? It won’t make any difference to the (non) enforcement.

I'm sure they'll still find a way to keep Wetherspoons open even at tier 54.

Spam88 Mon 26-Oct-20 15:35:40

Well obviously there needs to be a higher tier than tier 3, given you can still go out for a meal and travel if you're tier 3.

Jenasaurus Mon 26-Oct-20 15:39:51

If they had proper enforcement of the current Tier Rules it would help

Tier 4 is mentioned in this guidance which was last updated 28 Augusut.

~~~
Tier 4
All nurseries, childminders, mainstream schools, colleges and other educational establishments allow full-time attendance on site only to our priority groups: vulnerable children and the children of critical workers. All other pupils should not attend on site. AP, special schools and other specialist settings will allow for full-time on-site attendance of all pupils. Remote education to be provided for all other pupils.

In all areas of national government intervention, education settings where pupils in year 7 and above are educated, face coverings should be worn by adults and pupils when moving around the premises, outside of classrooms, such as in corridors and communal areas where social distancing cannot easily be maintained.

So maybe that would be what would happen, in regards to childcare and education.

It's because people are not following the rules. And people are actively & socially discouraged from reporting, in RL & online, i.e. "it's none of your business", you don't know their circumstances", & "snitches get stitches" type of responses on at least half a dozen threads every day on here.

FWIW, I know someone who lives in a tier 3 area. Not following the rules at all & doesn't care. Works with people with severe physical & mental disabilities in a residential facility. But they got quite stressed when they thought I'd mentioned them in passing to a council worker (when I rang the council about an issue I was having) - so they know damned well they're breaking restrictions. I despair of people sometimes.

RunBackwards Mon 26-Oct-20 15:47:40

We're in Tier two and from what I'm seeing on my FB and on MN very few people are adhering.

Manchester has been in Tier 2 for months and things are still getting worse.

It doesn't matter what the restrictions are if no one's complying.

MaxNormal Mon 26-Oct-20 15:54:04

People have got total lockdown fatigue, of course they have. What else did anyone expect? You can't keep making people's lives a misery indefinitely.

Agreed.

My brother lives in Romania & their lockdown meant they had armed soldiers on the streets and you required a dated permit to leave your house. So when he needed to go food shopping he had to get a dated permit stating the date and his reason for leaving his house.

Govt have made threats of tougher restrictions and army on the streets but its like when you threaten your kid that you'll take their xbox away and then never follow through. They don't listen. People don't listen to empty threats.

I'm not saying we need armed patrols but empty threats don't work either.
But, the way that people have behaved over simple, basic things I don't even think they listen to anyone or anything. Too pig headed. So proud. 🙄

That's only for education though - which has tiers 1-4 entirely separately from the national tiers! Madness...

Totally this.

There are so many people who are looking at severe financial hardship or mental breakdown due to repeated isolation through the winter.

With schools fully open and all the increased contacts that are occurring because of that, there is no way to bring the community infection rates down.

BlanchflowerTulip Mon 26-Oct-20 16:03:42

How is another extended national lockdown going to be paid for? Serious question. If we lockdown again we're looking at economic ruin on a scale that no-one will have ever seen before that won't leave anyone untouched.

Frazzled2207 Mon 26-Oct-20 16:07:37

@nannynick
They came up with that guidance in the summer but have not adhered to what they said then as to tier 1 2 and 3. So it seems they have ditched that entire framework for whatever reason.

TicTacTwo Mon 26-Oct-20 16:08:10

Tier 4 is local circuit breaker lockdown

TicTacTwo Mon 26-Oct-20 16:10:49

In theory they are supposed to be looking at Tiers every 28 days so I'm guessing that the first deadline is in a couple of weeks and that's when we might see Tier 3+ and Tier 4 introduced

MaxNormal Mon 26-Oct-20 16:13:23

The countries with the strictest lockdowns have seen the worst second waves, look at Spain and the Czech Republic.

Plus tbh there's no way I'd want to see the army on the streets, that's a slippery slope we do not want to go down.

This is what makes me think we just need to get back to normal. It's going to be awful but it's going to happen whether its now or in 3 years' time. At least now, we have half a chance of an economy strong enough to deal with it.

littlefatso Mon 26-Oct-20 16:19:14

but a vaccine is so close, we could save loads of lives by locking down now until a vaccine, THEN rebuild the economy

lockeddownandcrazy Mon 26-Oct-20 16:21:11

I wish they either actually enforced what we already have - ie instant fines for people having parties or gatherings or drunk in groups in the street rather than just advising them ( which they knew anyway just chose to ignore) or just gave it all up and let us make our own choices. Having another tier if its not enforced is totally pointless.
