A new national ban across England means people will have to stay home unless there are specific reasons, such as B. going to school or college or the supermarket.
Prime Minister Boris Johnson announced the new measures at a press conference on Downing Street on Saturday.
He said the measures were necessary to avert dire predictions of 85,000 deaths this winter.
In the following, MailOnline describes the most important details of the new restrictions, according to which pubs, bars and restaurants have to be closed again.

When do the new rules come into force?
The new national lockdown runs from November 5th to December 2nd.
The lockdown will then be relaxed on a regional basis according to the latest coronavirus case data at that time.
Can i leave my home
Yes, but only for specific reasons like education, work when you can't work from home, and exercise that you can take as many times a day as you want.
Construction sites or production sites are examples of workplaces that employees still have to go to.
People can also leave their home to relax in their own household or alone with someone from another household (a “one plus one” rule).
Construction sites or manufacturing facilities are examples of jobs that employees have yet to go to, but in general, people are advised to work from home
Examples of recreation include meeting a friend in the park for a walk or sitting on a bench and having a sandwich.
People are not allowed to meet in houses and gardens, and golf clubs remain closed.
People can also leave the house to buy groceries and essentials, and to look after vulnerable people or volunteers.
Attending medical appointments is also permitted or may avoid injury or damage (e.g. for people suffering from domestic violence).
Support bladders stay in place and people can still meet in their bladder.
Children can move between their parents' homes when their parents are separated.
What will be closed?
Shops, leisure and entertainment options that are not absolutely necessary are closed.

Recreational facilities such as gyms and entertainment venues are closed
Hairdressers and beauty salons are also closing, as with the first lockdown that began in March
What if the last time I shielded?
Prime Minister Boris Johnson said people over 60 and those who are clinically at risk are urged to be extra careful to follow the rules and minimize contact with others.
Anyone officially notified to shield and not go to work for the last time is advised not to go to work this time.
However, formal shielding, such as that held during the March and April lockdown – where people were told not to leave the house for any reason – is not being introduced.

Should my children go to school or daycare? Can you go to a playground?
Yes, schools, colleges and universities remain open.
Day mothers and kindergartens remain open and childcare bubbles, in which, for example, a grandparent offers childcare while one parent works, can continue.
After school and sports clubs are closed until December 2nd.
Playgrounds and parks remain open.
Schools, colleges and universities remain open. Day mothers and kindergartens remain open and childcare bubbles, in which, for example, a grandparent offers childcare while one parent works, can continue.
Can i go on vacation?
No, it is recommended that you only travel for essential reasons. People can travel to work.
Those already on vacation can return to the UK and airports and train stations will remain open.
What if I'm already abroad?
Travelers do not have to return early from their travels.
Airlines are responsible for bringing travelers home under consumer law. However, flight schedules are being cut due to the drop in demand, which means that many people will be forced to change their travel dates.

I thought we could go to the Canary Islands?
It has been less than two weeks since the government lifted the quarantine requirement for people returning from the Spanish islands.
This resulted in airlines offering additional flights to handle the surge in bookings.
Will the travel corridors continue?
The Prime Minister made no mention of travel corridors in his press conference on Saturday evening, which means people traveling from certain areas are likely to remain exempt from quarantine.
But the lock means that the number of travelers will still be reduced.
Will I get my money back if I have booked a vacation that I cannot continue?
If your flight is still in progress and your destination has not changed, you are not automatically entitled to a refund.
Due to the new restrictions, many planes are likely to be on the ground by Thursday, meaning people with existing bookings will receive a refund.
If I am eligible for a refund, how soon will I get my money?
UK consumers are protected under European law that they should receive a full cash refund within seven days for canceled flights and 14 days for package holidays that have not taken place.
But since the coronavirus outbreak, many people have struggled to get payouts from airlines and vacation companies.
This situation is likely to continue in the coming weeks.
Is there a vacation program?
Yes, vacation is 80 percent due for the duration of the package of tougher national measures.
Support will be available across the UK.
Business premises that have to close in England can receive a Local Restrictions Support Grant up to £ 3,000 per month.
Another £ 1.1 billion will be given to local authorities – split on a £ 20 per capita basis – for one-off payments to support businesses.
Is there any mortgage support?
Yes. Homeowners can take advantage of a mortgage payment vacation that was supposed to end on Saturday but has been extended.
Can i go to church
The churches remain open to private prayers.
Funerals are limited to close family members only. It is currently unclear what rules apply to weddings.

Will the Premier League football games continue?
Yes. Boris Johnson said games would continue despite the restrictions.
What if i live in a lowercase area?
You need to keep following the rules as they apply across England.
Professor Chris Whitty said that many of the lowercase areas have the highest growth rates.
He also warned: "Some areas, including the Southwest, are likely to put pressure on beds relatively early because of the way the NHS is organized in those areas."
