Coronavirus: Weekly update from Camden Council leader Georgia Gould


04 March, 2021 — By Cllr Georgia Gould


I am pleased that so many residents have now received their first COVID-19 vaccination or have appointments coming up. I encourage anyone currently eligible to get your vaccine – it’s the best way we can protect ourselves against the virus.

Please remember that even if you have been vaccinated, you still need to follow Government and public health guidance – keeping your distance, wearing a face covering (unless exempt) and washing your hands.

As part of the phased approach to ending lockdown, which includes schools and further education colleges opening from next week, restrictions will only be eased if the data on vaccine uptake and infections are heading in the right direction.

Thanks to the role everyone has played so far, coronavirus cases are falling in Camden and London but the virus has not gone away and we will need to keep taking precautions to make sure we don’t go backwards, including regular testing.

The Council is committed to doing all we can to help, and Camden are providing free rapid tests for parents and carers of school children, anyone who needs to leave the house for work, and those in close contact with others through care or volunteer responsibilities.

Councillor Georgia Gould, Leader of Camden Council
