Coronavirus: Weekly update from Camden Council leader Georgia Gould


28 January, 2021 — By Cllr Georgia Gould


At what is still such a difficult time for London and the country, it’s heartening hearing that so many of our older and most vulnerable residents have received the vaccine in Camden.

People who are over 70 or extremely clinically vulnerable, care home patients and staff and health and care professionals are prioritised because they are at most risk from the virus.

When it’s your turn, the NHS will be in touch, so please wait for them to contact you and in the meantime make sure you’re registered with your local GP. The COVID-19 vaccine is safe and our best hope of protection against the virus.

Even if you have had a dose of the vaccine, please continue to follow public health advice. By staying at home and following the guidance if we have to go out for an essential reason, we are helping to protect ourselves, our community, and the NHS.

Councillor Georgia Gould, Leader of Camden Council

Stay at home to save lives

With cases of coronavirus still so high in London, it’s vital to follow public health advice to prevent catching it or passing it on:

  • Stay at home unless leaving your house for an essential reason. If you go out, act like you and others have COVID-19
  • Wear a face covering in indoor and busy outdoor public spaces, unless exempt
  • Wash hands regularly and thoroughly
  • Keep 2 metres apart from people you don’t live with
