Boris Johnson, the prime minister, announced the return to the system in the House of Commons on November 23.
However the three-tiered system will be stricter, the PM said.
The old tiers of ‘medium’, ‘high’ and ‘very high’ alert levels will return after the lockdown ends on December 2.
Pubs will be stay open until 11pm this time in Tier 1 and Tier 2 – but will have to serve alcohol with a substantial meal in the ‘high’ level areas. In Tier 3 they will only be allowed to serve takeaways.
Gyms and non-essential shops will be allowed to reopen.
Fans will be allowed to return to sport stadiums both indoor and outdoor in Tier 1 and Tier 2.
The new lockdown tiers were announced on Thursday.
