Will shielding end on December 2nd?

I only received my shielding letter last Friday. I had the email on the 4th though so already knew. There is nothing in there about an end date for shielding. Does anyone know what will happen or any clue as to what might happen?
I walk my ds to school and pick him up and that's it worst from sometimes walking to my mum's as we are bubbled with her.
I can't see things being improved significantly in the next 2 weeks.

I think of it as shielding lite this time around, and suspect it may continue - certainly in tier 3 areas (and higher if they do bring out a new stricter one) and maybe tier 2

According to the government website

These new shielding measures will apply nationally for 4 weeks up to 2 December. At the end of the period, we will look to return to a regional approach and will issue further guidance at the time.

Hmmm they also said the week before they reintroduced shielding that it wouldn't be introduced so I don't have any faith in it ending on the 2nd.
We were in tier 3 before and there was no shielding. Our rates are 350/100,000 and that's come down by 100 recently.
