A new map shows how the rates of Hertfordshire’s corona virus are comparable to their neighbors when new regulations come into force across the country.
Essex and London will enter into Tier 2 restrictions, which prohibit indoor mixing between homes.
However, residents of Hertfordshire will not see any changes over the weekend with the county remaining in Tier 2.
Both authorities have said that despite the restrictions, all businesses can remain open and that moving upwards is the first step in trying not to impose strict restrictions.
The map, using data from the Press Association, shows an increase in London-related cases in the southern parts of our country.
With another small increase in Cambridge, the number of cases seems to be declining as we move further away from London.
However, the figures in all the five cases seem to be moving towards 100 cases per lakh, of which restrictions are considered.
The exception is stevenage, which has the lowest infection in the entire area with 38.7 cases.

Hertfordshire County Council has confirmed that it is not asking the government to impose further restrictions.
A spokesman said yesterday: “The government has set up Hertfordshire at Medium Alert Level – Tier One, which we believe accurately reflects the current situation in the country.
“We are constantly monitoring the corona virus cases in Hertfordshire. We will talk to the government if the local situation changes.”
However, Hertfordshire’s Local Resilience Force (LRF) warned that people should do their part to ensure the county does not see a large increase in cases.
They said they were a limited window to avoid moving yourself to a column.
