New national COVID-19 restrictions have come into force across England, from 5 November to 2 December. These replace the Tier 3 restrictions in St Helens Borough. The new restrictions have many implications for sport and physical activity, but the main things to know are:
People can go outdoors to be active as many times as they like, either on their own, with their household or support bubble, or on their own with one person from another household while keeping two metres apart.
Children who are under school age if they're with a parent/carer, or people dependent on round-the-clock care, do not count towards the limit of two people from different households meeting outside.
Outdoor public places, such as parks, the countryside, beaches and public gardens can stay open, as can playgrounds.
All organised community outdoor sport is not permitted, meaning facilities including outdoor basketball and tennis courts, outdoor gyms and pools, golf courses, archery, driving and shooting ranges must also close.
Indoor sport and leisure facilities, such as leisure centres and gyms, swimming pools, tennis and basketball courts, fitness and dance studios, climbing walls, archery and shooting ranges, must close.
People cannot meet indoors with family or friends unless they’re part of their household or support bubble.
All children’s grassroots sport outside of school - both indoor and outdoor - must stop, but schools and nurseries will stay open and activity will be permitted within these settings during school hours, with playgrounds staying open.
