Coronavirus: Weekly update from Camden Council leader Georgia Gould


11 February, 2021 — By Cllr Georgia Gould


With temperatures dropping again this week, and the days still short, I know this is a really hard time of year to be living through lockdown.

Despite the ongoing challenges we all face, I continue to be deeply moved by the acts of love and care across Camden as our communities support each other.

If you are struggling to access help, from accessing food to struggling with mental health, then please contact the Council to find out what support is available on 020 7974 4444 (option 9).

All of us following the rules is making a huge difference to reduce the number of people catching the virus – but people are still getting infected every day in London and in Camden.

The vaccine gives the best protection against the virus and will reduce the number of people needing to go into hospital to be treated for COVID-19 – but we still have to do all we can to keep each other safe.

I visited one of Camden’s vaccination clinics and saw the joy and relief on people’s faces on getting their first dose – please do get vaccinated when it is your turn.

If you have been vaccinated, please do continue to follow the rules – washing your hands, wearing a face covering and keeping a distance from people you don’t live with.

Councillor Georgia Gould, Leader of Camden Council
