Covid-19 restrictions

A local tier system will be in place from 2 December to control the spread of Covid-19. London will be a high alert area – tier 2.

Find out rules that will be in place from 2 December.

Until then national lockdown restrictions remain in place and everyone must stay at home except for education, work (if it can't be done from home), exercise and recreation, medical reasons, shopping for food and essentials, or to care for others.

Remember, advice around Covid-19 can change quickly, so keep up to date with the latest information.



Coronavirus (COVID-19)

National restrictions are in place to help stop the spread of Covid-19 until the beginning of 2 December 2020. Please read the latest and follow the rules.

From 2 December 2020 a local tier system will be in place. London will be in tier 2 and everyone must follow an updated set of rules.

Remember you are safest when you follow hands, face, space.

Book a free test if you have any symptoms of Covid-19, and stay at home if you test positive or have been in contact with someone who has.

We know some residents have experienced issues booking Covid-19 tests through the government programme, however, if you have symptoms of Covid-19 you must self-isolate until you are able to take a test.

Government run local testing units are now open in Shadwell, Mile End and Isle of Dogs. Please book before attending. A mobile testing unit continues to operate near Canary Wharf and appointments are available online.

We are continuing to work with our partners across the borough to tackle Covid-19 and to make sure that our residents, particularly those most vulnerable, are supported.
