Parts of the south of Hertfordshire including Three Rivers, Watford and Hertsmere will be moving into tier three from midnight on Wednesday, health secretary Matt Hancock has announced this after.
Mr Hancock said the move is necessary because of a surge in infections among all age groups in the population.
The move means pubs and restaurants will have to close except for takeaway and delivery services.
The tier system will next be reviewed on December 23
