Coronavirus: Weekly update from council leader Georgia Gould


10 December, 2020 — By Cllr Georgia Gould


As we near the end of the year, many of us will be reflecting on the impact of coronavirus on our lives. For many it has been devastating, which is why it is more important than ever to keep following public health guidelines to help reduce the spread of the virus.

So many have been left struggling with household debt and unemployment – some unable to afford to eat or going hungry to feed their families. The scale of this crisis is huge and I know so many people want to help but aren’t sure how.

The Covid Community Campaign is raising funds to ensure no one in London goes hungry this winter.

We have seen what can be achieved when communities come together to support one another, so I urge you all to join in at – donate whatever you can afford and find out how you can help locally.

If you are struggling, please know that there is support available.

Councillor Georgia Gould, Leader of Camden Council

It’s vital to follow public health advice
Lockdown might be over, but rates of COVID-19 are still too high. Protect yourself, family and friends from coronavirus by following Tier 2 restrictions and:
• Washing your hands regularly
• Keeping 2 metres apart from people you don’t live with
• Wearing a face covering in indoor public spaces, unless exempt
