Prime Minister Boris Johnson warned that the tier system would be stricter than before, and more places would be placed into stricter tiers.
Most areas are in Tiers 2 and 3, apart from three places, but the rules vary for each place.
When the national lockdown ends, non-essential shops will be able to reopen in all Tiers.
But unfortunately, those in Tier 2 and 3 won’t be able to go shopping with other households, unless in their support bubble.
If you live in Tier 2 you can meet other households in outdoor shopping areas, such as markets.
But this is banned if you are living in a Tier 3 area.
These rules also apply to supermarkets, so you can only shop with someone you don’t live with in Tier 3.
Here are the latest supermarket updates Asda, Aldi, Tesco and Sainsbury’s, as reported by Manchester Evening News.
Aldi's CEO, Giles Hurley, recently told shoppers: "As new government guidance is introduced across different parts of the UK, I want to reassure you about the measures in place to ensure that you can continue to shop safely at your local Aldi.”
He went on to inform customers about the traffic light system, protective screens, sanitisation stations and signs in place in stores.
Aldi is encouraging payment by card, and they have increased the contactless limit to £45.
He continued: ”Our colleagues wear face masks in store unless they are behind screens at the checkout, or are exempt for medical reasons. Thank you for supporting us and keeping others safe by wearing one too.
"All of our stores are fully stocked, we have good availability and there are regular deliveries, at least once a day. There is no need to buy more than normal so please shop considerately.
"If you can’t make it into one of our stores, we are increasing the availability of our new click and collect service, which is now available in 12 locations, with more stores being added weekly."
Sainsbury’s is encouraging customers to “follow official guidelines for your local area and wear a face covering when shopping”.
If you don’t have a face covering when you arrive, Sainsbury’s staff will help you find one.
On the website, it says: “We’re continuing to offer priority access to home delivery slots for the most vulnerable customers, and based on information received from the Government, we’ve been able to contact over 600,000 customers and offer priority access.”
They have also increased the number of home delivery and Click and Collect slots.
NHS and care workers have priority entry from 7.30am to 8am Monday to Saturday, and elderly, vulnerable and disabled customers will still have priority entry from 8am to 9am Monday, Wednesday and Friday.
There are also the usual customer sanitiser stations and perspex screens.
Tesco has installed a traffic light system in larger stores to “help manage the flow in and out”.
But urges customers to “please keep to the social distancing markings”.
On its website, Tesco states: ”Hand sanitiser and cleaning stations are available around our stores, and we continue to have social distancing guidelines and signage in place. There are screens at the checkouts to keep everyone safe, and we encourage you to use contactless payment where you can.
"When you visit our stores, please follow the legal guidance on wearing a face covering. If you forget to bring one, we have packs available to buy at the front of our stores, which you can open immediately and pay for with your shopping later. As a reminder, the police can issue fines for not wearing a face covering, unless you’re exempt."
Asda customers are encouraged to wear face coverings, unless they have a “medical condition or invisible disability”.
The supermarket has also created 1,000 new Asda Safety Marshals who are stationed in front of every store and in the aisles of larger stores.
On the website, it explains: “These colleagues will be on hand to help customers with safety queries and reiterate Government guidelines to wear a face covering and maintain social distancing while they shop. Customers who do not have a covering when they enter the store will be offered a pack of disposable masks that they can pay for as they complete their shopping.”
Asda has also applying protective coating to all baskets and trolley handles, and had introduced additional hand sanitisation stations.
Lidl has put a “crowd control system” in place to manage social distancing.
There are security guards and designated teams to make sure this happens.
There is also a traffic light system in place so you can find the quietest time to shop.
On Lidl’s website, it states: "Wearing a face covering in our stores is mandatory in Scotland, England and Wales in line with government regulations, to help keep everyone safe.”
It also adds that they encourage people to use tongs in the bakery section, but there are also disposable gloves.
The Lidl team also pre-bag a selection of loose items for you.
