Coronavirus: Weekly update from Camden Council leader Georgia Gould


07 January, 2021 — By Cllr Georgia Gould


The news of a lockdown is heartbreaking for so many residents already struggling.

Despite the fatigue we all feel, we must continue to follow public health advice to save lives and protect each other. The last year saw so much pain but it also saw extraordinary generosity and community spirit.

I know Camden will come together again to get us through a difficult winter.

My clear and heartfelt message to Camden residents is to please stay at home wherever possible. Coronavirus cases are very high in Camden so residents have a much higher risk of catching it than previously.

This is a dangerous situation that requires every one of us to play a part – we continue to see rising infection levels and hospitalisations in London putting the NHS under huge strain.

Another lockdown will bring great anxiety for many residents. I can assure you that Camden and our communities are here to support you through this at this difficult time.

We will also do everything in our power to support the vaccine rollout, which gives us real hope for much brighter times in the months ahead.

Thank you to all Camden residents who are making sacrifices to stop the spread of the virus and to every single person on the front line working to keep us safe.

Councillor Georgia Gould, Leader of Camden Council
