Coronavirus: Tier 4 stay at home advice


31 December, 2020 — By Camden Council


The number of people testing positive for coronavirus is rising rapidly in London. This means you’re at a higher risk of catching coronavirus.

Please keep following Tier 4 restrictions and public health advice to keep yourself, your loved ones and community safe:

  • Stay at home unless leaving the house for a permitted reason – e.g. food, medical reasons, work or to exercise. You must work from home if you can
  • Wash your hands regularly for 20 seconds
  • Keep 2 metres apart from people you don’t live with – treat everyone as if they could be infected and behave as if you may be
  • Wear a face covering in indoor public spaces, unless exempt. You should also consider wearing a face covering in busy outdoor spaces where safe social distancing might be difficult
  • You can only meet one person from another household in an outdoor public space.For the latest Government guidelines, visit
