The recent government announcement of a new COVID-19 local alert level means that Walsall is now categorised as ‘high’ with new government restrictions that came into effect as of 14 October to curb the spread of the virus, save lives and protect the NHS. The high category means a heightened risk of community transmission in Walsall.  You must not meet socially with friends and family indoors in any setting unless you live with them or have formed a support bubble with them. This includes private homes, and any other indoor venues such as pubs and restaurants.

Under the new COVID-19 restrictions announced for Walsall that come into effect tomorrow, Wednesday 14 October, places of worship can still stay open and welcome people for a service in a high alert level area but the premises should be operated in a COVID-secure manner.

People attending their place of worship can further help to prevent spread of the virus by ensuring that government guidance is followed carefully.

The Government has designated Walsall as a High Alert level, meaning local restrictions will come into place.  This means that the borough of Walsall is now on the second step of a three-step ladder on the Government's Alert system and the council will receive some additional support to assist its collective efforts, with partners, to bring down the number of cases of COVID-19 across the borough.
