Coronavirus: Weekly update from Camden Council leader Georgia Gould


11 March, 2021 — By Cllr Georgia Gould


This week marks the first step in the Government’s plan to ease lockdown, which includes schools and colleges reopening for face-to-face learning.

It’s brilliant to see so many children going back to school and I want to say a huge thank you to all the school staff working so hard to make sure this happens safely.

While this brings a great deal of hope, there is still a long way to go. There are still restrictions in place, and we need to follow them carefully to ensure the timeline for lifting lockdown stays on track.

If we all do our bit, we’ll keep each other safe and give ourselves the best chance of things beginning to look more like normal.

I know that many of us will be feeling anxious after all the difficulty and pain of the last year, and about what lies ahead. Please remember there is support for you – including additional financial support for individuals and businesses, some of which is detailed below.

There is also free, rapid testing available for anyone who needs to leave home for work, care and for parents and carers of school children.

Councillor Georgia Gould, Leader of Camden Council
