Cumbria is now under Tier 4. Under the new restriction level, all hospitality businesses in the county must close apart from sales by takeaway, drive-through or delivery. All personal care businesses, non-essential retail, indoor leisure and entertainment venues must also close.

The government guidance states that people must not leave a Tier 4 area or stay overnight away from home and those living in Tier 1–3 places should not enter Tier 4 areas.
