Pest Control Services to Remain Open During Second Covid 19 UK Lockdown
Covid-19 cases are spiking across the UK, with the country now seeing around 20,000 cases a day and roughly 46,000 deaths linked to the disease. England recorded Europe’s highest excess death levels during the first wave of the pandemic and this rise in cases, following a relatively relaxed summer, are raising fears that this will be a much more deadly second wave.
As a result, England is once more set to face tougher lockdown restrictions from Thursday 5 November, in a move which mirrors recent decisions made by the devolved authorities in Wales and Northern Ireland, with Scotland opting for a strict tier system.
Public health in the four nations
Across the UK, devolved governments have been implementing various public health strategies to curb the rising numbers of positive Covid-19 cases.
- England will go into a second lockdown, starting at 00:01 GMT on Thursday 5 November and lasting at least four weeks
- Scotland has a five-tier system in place, with different areas under different levels of restriction
- Northern Ireland is under a four-week circuit breaker that started on 16 October
- Wales is under a two-week “firebreak” system that will end on 9 November.
All devolved governments agree that pest management businesses can continue to work.
