Leicester lockdown measures lifting in the district on 18 July

Saturday 18 July is the date that lockdown restrictions will be lifted for those in the affected areas of the district. Initially it was thought that the lockdown would be lifted on 24 July but the government reviewed the date. More »

The areas of the district set out below have been part of the Leicester lockdown which started on 30 June. The Secretary for Health and Social Care, Matt Hancock announced in his speech last night that all areas in the county would be released from lockdown, with the exception of Oadby and Wigston.

  • Braunstone Town (including Fosse Park)
  • Glenfield
  • Glen Parva
  • Leicester Forest East (The area East of the M1)
  • Thorpe Astley
  • Enderby (area to the East of M1)

These areas will now return to national social distancing guidelines. A reminder of what is now allowed is on the government's website.

Whilst this will mean many of you will be starting to enjoy more freedom, the local lockdown is a reminder that we are not yet 'out of the woods' with the virus. Please do enjoy yourselves and help rebuild the local economy but do so responsibly and safely. We can only enjoy these new freedoms if we all act responsibly and do all we can to prevent the virus spreading.

We all have to do our bit to stay safe, save lives and to ensure that we can keep the district open.

Local coronavirus data

We have been asked about how to get localised data about the number of coronavirus cases in specific areas. The government publishes all of this data, and for Blaby District you can get the figures for the number of cases on the government's website. Just click past the national figures and click on the "LTLA" tab to access the alphabetical list.

Leicestershire County Council also make data available on their website.

Face Coverings

From 24 July in England, face coverings will be compulsory in shops and supermarkets, as well as on public transport.

There are exemptions to the rule, which include children under the age of 11, people who have breathing difficulties, or those living with a disability.

Your face covering must cover your nose and mouth at all times.

More information about wearing a face covering, those who are exempt, and instructions on how to make one, can be found on the government website.

Play Areas

We are looking forward to welcoming people back to our 7 play areas that will reopen on Monday 20 July.

  • Copt Oak Gardens, Narborough
  • Fosse Meadows (play area), Sharnford
  • Foulds Lane, Whetstone
  • Nowells Close, Glen Parva
