The Government’s Tier 2 lockdown restrictions come into effect for the county today, which means households are no longer allowed to mix with others indoors.

People in Nottinghamshire are forbidden from meeting others they don’t live with in homes, pubs or restaurants.

However, residents are permitted to meet people in groups of six outside as long as social distancing measures are adhered to.

Officers have asked people in Nottinghamshire to report lockdown breaches by calling 101.

The new three-tier lockdown rules, which were announced by the Prime Minister on Monday, will be enforced from today due to the rising spread of coronavirus across the county.

Officers all around the country have been granted powers to enforce the new measures, which prevent different households from mixing with each other.

In Nottinghamshire, police have urged residents to report breaches of the enhanced Covid-19 rules by dialling the non-emergency number 101.

While, Derbyshire Constabulary told people to dial 999 in an emergency which is a threat to life and encouraged residents to report ‘serious’ breaches such as large gatherings with multiple households through a virtual questionnaire.

Officers in South Yorkshire, also set up an online form to help people report details of the breach on the force’s website.

South Yorkshire Police said: “The government has set out new regulations to prevent the spread of coronavirus.

“Additional powers have been granted to the police to enforce these rules.”
