London Business Hub: Please see message from the Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan.
Londoners have done exactly what has been asked of them since the start of this pandemic, and their monumental sacrifice managed to keep the number of cases lower in our city than most other parts of the country since the summer.
Yesterday’s news that London will enter Tier 2 on 2 December will be a welcome boost for London’s shops, businesses and hospitality venues, who were forced to close just as preparations for the Christmas period began. Businesses across London have worked incredibly hard to make their premises Covid-safe, and I am really pleased that they are able to open their doors again.
Key Tier 2 rules include:

I recognise that this continues to be an incredibly challenging time for many others, especially those already struggling in our hospitality, culture and entertainment sectors. I continue to call on the Government to take action to avoid irreversible damage to the country’s economy, including:
While we now know what restrictions will be from next Wednesday, there is still almost a week of lockdown still to go. Your support continues to be an important part in making sure Londoners continue following the rules to reduce the spread of the virus.
With the positive news of a vaccine now in sight, it’s crucial we continue to follow the rules and do everything we can to protect the NHS and save lives.
I again thank you for your leadership and resilience in helping London’s economy to reopen safely.
Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan
