Following Monday’s announcement on local alert levels, the government has created a postcode checker to enable residents to find out which alert level applies in their area and the measures that should be followed as a result.

It also provides people with the opportunity to check restrictions in other areas, if they are considering travelling within England (different restrictions apply in Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland).

The postcode checker can be found using this link and the alert levels with associated restrictions are also available via the NHS COVID-19 app.
