Can I go on holiday after lockdown? What the new tier system means for getaways

The Health Secretary Matt Hancock has today revealed what tier each part of the country will fall under, when lockdown ends on December 2.

Manchester, Hull and Newcastle are among swathes of the North set to face the toughest coronavirus restrictions with only three areas – Cornwall, the Isles of Scilly and the Isle of Wight placed into the lowest Tier 1 category.

The shift from national lockdown to a tiered system means that holidays will be back on the cards for people living in Tiers 1 and 2, where hotels and self-catering accommodation can reopen.

For anyone falling in Tier 3, however, hotels will remain closed, group holidays with multiple households will be banned, and non-essential travel in and out of your area will still be prohibited.

So will you be able to travel overseas, or within the UK, after December 2? Here’s a look at what re-entering the

‘Guilt gifting’ is a thing in 2020 as we try to make up for a rough year

The country is polarized about so many things — the election, the right way to tackle the virus, who you should or shouldn’t sit next to at Thanksgiving. So why shouldn’t 2020 holiday gift giving join the ever-growing list of potentially hot button topics?

On the one side, you can run into girlfriends or cousins who want to ditch holiday shopping. “Let’s just share good wishes, not gifts,” they’ll say. Makes sense. After all, many consumers suffered job losses, pay cuts or furloughs, shuttered businesses, the loss of loved ones to the coronavirus, and seemingly never-ending anxiety in 2020.

Then again, what’s the harm in sending someone a special box of gourmet cookies or coffees out of the blue? Or maybe even splurging by spending $500 or more on a Sony PlayStation 5? Kind of makes sense, too. We could all use a pick-me-up.

What about all those loved ones

The Daily Beast

She Lured A Woman To Her Death With a Fake Domino’s Delivery

Ashley Biggs was working as a Domino’s delivery driver when she stopped at an Ohio business one summer night in 2012. An Army vet and mother of a young daughter, Biggs had no idea this company was closed. Or that the caller who had ordered the large half-mushroom, half-pepperoni pie used an alias.The midnight delivery was just a ruse to lure Biggs, 25, to her death. At the time, Biggs was in the middle of a heated custody battle with Chad Cobb, her ex-boyfriend and the father of her 7-year-old child. When Biggs arrived, Cobb was waiting in the parking lot with a Taser and 4-foot zip-tie, which he used to strangle her.Cobb dumped Biggs’ body in the trunk of her car and abandoned the vehicle in a cornfield in Wayne County near his parents’

Those who are flying witnessed a distinctly 2020 landscape at the nation’s airports: plexiglass barriers in front of the ID stations, rapid virus testing sites inside terminals, masks in check-in areas and on board planes, and paperwork asking passengers to quarantine on arrival at their destination.

While the number of Americans travelling by air over the past several days was down dramatically from the same time last year, many pressed ahead with their holiday plans amid skyrocketing deaths, hospital admissions and confirmed infections across the US.

Some were tired of more than eight
