UK to relax COVID rules for Christmas, enforce tier system

United Kingdom's Prime Minister Boris Johnson will reveal his government's "COVID Winter Plan" on Monday, British media reported. Johnson is expected to announce a relaxation of coronavirus measures for the Christmas holidays, as well as strengthen the tier system afterward.

Downing Street said Johnson will "set out how people will be able to see their loved ones at Christmas," including allowing families to visit each other as well as attend church services. However, he will also announce a change in the three-tier system when the current lockdown ends on December 2. While details are currently unknown, Johnson is expected to say that more regions will be moved into higher tiers, meaning that they will face tougher restrictions.
