Clear communication needed on exit strategy after tier 3 lockdown confirmed in Nottingham, says East Midlands Chamber

Responding to confirmation that Nottingham, along with the areas of Broxtowe, Gedling and Rushcliffe, will be placed into the highest tier of coronavirus restrictions from Thursday, East Midlands Chamber (Derbyshire, Nottinghamshire, Leicestershire) chief executive Scott Knowles said: “We urge the Government and those local authorities impacted to ensure they provide clear communication to businesses between now and Thursday about what they need to do, as well as highlighting the support available to them and how it can be accessed.

“While we understand the public health reasons for this decision, it will have a significantly detrimental impact on people’s lives in the areas affected, so it is vitally important the Government is also transparent in what the exit strategy is.

“Businesses and communities must be aware of which tests must be passed, and when, in order for the area to come out of tier three lockdown. This situation can’t be allowed to continue for any longer than is absolutely necessary.”
