Social restrictions are in three tiers, with tier three bringing harsh regulations similar to those experienced in the early summer, while tier one relies on the current rule of six and 10pm curfews at hospitality venues.

Tier two is somewhere in between, with households not allowed to mix but pubs are not forced to close.

Regions are placed in tiers predominantly based on their infection rate, namely how many people are infected, per 100,000 of the population, per week.

Covid-19 rates

Currently all of Sussex sits in tier one and every local authority has an infection rate below the national average, which stands at 123/100,000.

Some areas, such as Adur and Rother, have some of the lowest infection rates in the country.
