Damian Waters, CBI North West Director, said:
“While this will come as a disappointment and a surprise to many people, it’s essential that we keep on top of the virus and public safety must come first.
“The steps announced are designed to avoid a new full local lockdown which would mean tighter measures, so it’s important that we all follow the rules.
“This won’t be the last local area that faces renewed temporary restrictions in the coming months, so the Government must do better on providing clear, timely advice and appropriate support. It’s a must to maintain public confidence.”
