News of the spread of the Omicron variant will understandably be concerning for us all. The Government has introduced additional COVID-19 restrictions – it’s vital we follow them to protect ourselves and others.

I want to reassure you that we will continue to work with local partners in support of everyone who needs help in the days and weeks ahead.

As part of that work we will do everything in our power to identify anyone who may have come into contact with this variant and offer them testing.

If you think you might have any symptoms, please do get tested as soon and as safely as possible – and if you need help whilst self-isolating, call us on 020 7974 4444 (option 9).

This week marks one year since the first Londoner got vaccinated against COVID-19. The vaccine remains the number one way to protect yourself and others from the virus. It’s not too late to get your first dose, so please get yours as soon as possible and get the booster as soon as you’re eligible.

I know many people will be looking ahead to festive gatherings with family and friends, and social activities – it’s more important than ever that we follow the measures in place to keep us all safe.

This includes regular testing to check you’re COVID-free and wearing a face covering, unless exempt.

You can find more useful advice, support and tips for staying safe and well in Camden’s winter 2021 booklet, which is being delivered to all residents and businesses this week. Copies will also be available in local libraries.

Councillor Georgia Gould, Leader of Camden Council
