The Three Tiers – Covid-19 Update

In the past week there has been some big changes to rules around the country when it comes to the Corona Virus pandemic. Unfortunately, the virus has returned for a second wave and the rise in cases in the last few weeks has been sharp and severe which is something we all feared could happen.

In response to this the government has released a 3-tier system to try and nullify the virus without having a complete lockdown again. Although if the numbers continue to rise as they are doing so then a lockdown or “circuit breaker” could be introduced. A circuit breaker is basically a lockdown but it is for a set period of time rather than continual until the numbers reduce like the first lockdown. Its goal will be to reduce the number of infections and turn the tide in our favour.

In the meantime, before the circuit breaker is introduced (If it is needed) there will be a three-tier system. The tier you fall into will vary depending on where you live and the number of infections in your area. Please see the images below that were sourced from – https://www.bbc.com/news/explainers-52530518

The three tiers are split into categories – medium, high and very high and as you can see above the rules change for each area. In terms of business for Countrywide Windows we are relatively unaffected unless Somerset is to fall under the high-risk category.

For the time being we will continue to operate as normal making sure we wear masks and wash our hands regularly to minimise the chances of infection or spreading the virus. We can also do contactless installs where you do not have to be present in order for you and the team to feel safe and secure.

The safety of our clients and team is most important to us and therefore if you or the team do not feel comfortable we will happily reschedule or make other arrangements so ensure you are happy with the safety and service you are getting.

As always stay safe and keep in touch with your loved ones during this hard time.

We will continue to provide further updates as more information is released.

The Countrywide Windows Team.

What Will Happen In 2021?

2020 has been a crazy year for everyone around the world. The pandemic threw the whole year into chaos and unfortunately until a vaccine is found it shows no signs of slowing down.
