A list of shops and businesses that must close on Thursday - including nail salons, hairdressers and leisure centres.
This Thursday (5 November), England will go into a second national lockdown, with non-essential businesses being told to close until earliest 2 December.
All pubs, restaurants and non-essential shops will be asked to close until 2 December, and people will be banned from mixing with anyone outside their households and support bubbles, except for childcare and other forms of support.
Speaking at a press conference at No10 Downing Street this evening, Prime Minister Boris Johnson said: "We have got to be humble in the face of nature, in this country alas - as much of Europe - the virus is spreading much faster than the reasonable worst case scenario.
"Unless we act, we could see death in this country at several thousand a day, a bigger mortality than in April."
Detailing the new rules, he added: "From Thursday, until the start of December, you must stay at home - only leave for education, for work, for exercise and recreation outdoors with your household, on your own, or one person from another household, for medical reasons, escape from danger or harm, and to shop for food and essentials".
All businesses classed as 'non-essential' by the government will be told to close their doors on Thursday 5 November.
