Coronavirus: Weekly update from Camden Council leader Georgia Gould


15 July, 2021 — By Cllr Georgia Gould


I want to start by saying a huge thank you to everyone in Camden for their role since the pandemic began.

The strength of spirit demonstrated, from following public health guidance to protect our communities, to looking out for neighbours when they needed it most, has undoubtedly saved lives.

While 19 July signals a new phase, it is not the end of this deadly virus. COVID-19 cases are still rapidly rising.

Please remember that if you catch the virus, you could pass it on to someone else, even if you are vaccinated.

The sooner everyone is double vaccinated, the safer we will all be, so please get both doses as soon as possible.

After 19 July, you will still be required to wear a face covering on public transport in London, unless exempt.

We also strongly advise you to keep following advice around washing your hands, wearing a face covering in other busy indoor and outside areas, keeping a safe distance, and ventilating indoor spaces to help keep everyone as safe as possible.

Please also remember that some residents may be feeling nervous, overwhelmed or frightened about restrictions easing for a variety of reasons. So please continue being kind to others, and do all you can to keep yourselves and others safe.

Councillor Georgia Gould, Leader of Camden Council
