Leicester Lockdown

A map of the local Leicester Lockdown

Lockdown restrictions will be lifted from the affected areas in the district of Blaby on 18 July.

Initially it was thought that the lockdown would be lifted on 24 July, but the government has reviewed the date and advised that restrictions will now end on 18 July.

The Secretary for Health and Social Care, Matt Hancock announced in his speech on 16 July that restrictions would be lifted from all areas across the county except for Oadby and Wigston.

Leicester and outlying areas in Charnwood, Blaby and Oadby and Wigston were asked to continue to follow stricter lockdown measures for two weeks from 30 June.  

The red line on the map marks the revised area affected by the Lockdown.  Residents and businesses clearly outside the red line should follow the national guidance for England and that includes those that pay their Council Tax or Business Rates to Blaby District Council. Those inside the red line will need to continue to follow local lockdown restrictions.

Whilst restrictions have been lifted we all need to do our bit to stay safe, save lives and ensure that we can keep the district of Blaby open - act responsibly and do all that you can to prevent the virus spreading.

Information and localised data for the number of cases in Leicestershire is available on Leicestershire County Council's website. Or you can visit Gov.uk to obtain data for individual local authority areas.
