Coronavirus: Weekly update from Georgia Gould


30 July, 2020 — By Cllr Georgia Gould


One of the most important lessons this crisis has taught us is how much we can achieve when we work together.

That’s why Camden has joined with other boroughs in a London-wide campaign, Keep London Safe, that encourages us to do everything we can to keep our boroughs and the city safe, and prevent a second wave. Locally we’re calling it Keep Camden Safe.

Along with following social distancing measures, washing your hands frequently and wearing a face covering, getting a test when you have symptoms is the most important thing you can do to protect yourself and others.

If you have a high temperature, a new continuous cough, or a loss or change to your sense of smell or taste, please stay at home and get tested as soon as possible, and follow the instructions of NHS Test and Trace if they contact you.

Finally, to our Muslim community, I want to say Eid Mubarak to those who are marking Eid al-Adha. I hope you are able to celebrate safely with loved ones, whether that’s virtually or in person

. While things have moved on since Eid al-Fitr in May, it’s still really important we observe the guidelines, whether you are visiting your local mosque or celebrating at home.

I want to say thanks again to everyone for playing their part these past few months, let’s continue working together to keep Camden safe.

Councillor Georgia Gould, Leader of Camden Council
