Find Covid restrictions based on postcode

Date published: 14 October 2020

You can now find out coronavirus restrictions in a local area within England with the launch of the government’s postcode checker.

Enter the postcode of the place you want to know about, such as where you live or work.

The checker will tell you which local authority area the postcode is under, and what local Covid alert level is in place.

The checker also links you to a list of things you can and cannot do in that area.
