Police in Cambridgeshire and the Fens are urging residents to continue following the Government’s Tier 4 rules on New Year’s Eve.
Officers released a statement on social media early this morning (December 30) reminding people to stay safe during 2021 celebrations.
On a normal year, Cambridgeshire residents would be partying with friends and family at home, in pubs or traveling to London for the fireworks.
This year’s celebrations will look very different due to Covid-19 restrictions in place to stop the spread of coronavirus between households.
A spokesperson for Cambridgeshire Police said: “Please follow the Tier 4 rules for New Year’s Eve.
You may also want to watch:
“You can only meet indoors with your household and support bubble.
“If you’re on your own outdoors, you can mix with one person from another household.”
