First and foremost, I want to send my best wishes to everyone in Camden for a merry Christmas and a happy new year. I also want to say a massive thank you – your actions this year in responding to the continued threat of COVID-19 have undoubtedly saved lives. 

Clearly though, with the Omicron COVID-19 variant on a rapid rise, we all need to keep taking great care in the days and weeks ahead. 

As Professor Chris Whitty, England’s Chief Medical Officer, has recommended, think very carefully about how and where you’re socialising, make spending time with those that matter most to you your priority, and if you can avoid unnecessary gatherings, please do. 

Good choices, for example getting a rapid test to check you’re COVID-free before you meet others and wearing face coverings in busy public places, will help to save lives. 

As essential as those actions are, however, getting fully vaccinated and boosted as soon as you can is still the most effective thing that you can do to protect yourself, your loved ones, and the community around you. Find out how below. 

We continue to support our local businesses, many of whom are still being impacted greatly by the pandemic, and will work closely with them to roll out the new package of support in the coming weeks. 

Whilst I am wishing everyone a safe and peaceful period, I do appreciate that, for lots of reasons, this is not always an easy time of year. So if you find yourself in need of help over this time, please get in touch – there is support available, details of which are below.
