Coronavirus: Weekly update from Camden Council leader Georgia Gould


05 August, 2021 — By Cllr Georgia Gould


With summer well underway, I just want to remind you that we and our fantastic local partners are hosting a wide range of events and activities across the borough for all ages and abilities.

We understand this continues to be a really difficult time for many people, so we’re glad to offer spaces where we can come together safely and enjoy what Camden has to offer.

You can find out more, including details of our Summer in Camden line-up for young people, at

As more people get out and about in Camden, a simple thing we can all do to keep safe is to make regular rapid testing part of our weekly routine.

Rapid tests are for people without symptoms, and help make sure that we’re not spreading COVID-19 without realising it. So, whether you’re heading out to an event, to work or to meet friends, take a test beforehand to check you’re COVID-free.

You can pick up free home test kits from local pharmacies, order kits online or visit a local test site to take a test in person.
