Areas which are in the lockdown area include:

In these areas non essential shops are to close immediately; schools are to close from Thursday (unless open for key workers and vulnerable children) and the planned easing of restrictions on Saturday such as the reopening of pubs, restaurants and hairdressers will not go ahead.
People should avoid all but essential travel to, from and within these areas and should stay at home as much as you can.
