Covid-19 (coronavirus)

 

A national lockdown is now in place to control the spread of Covid-19 as rates rapidly increase across London and the country.

Everyone must now stay at home, and only leave home for specific reasons.

Full details of what you can and cannot do are available on the Government’s website.

Places of worship are permitted to stay open and information on the safe use of places of worship can be found online.

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. If you have symptoms of Covid-19 you must self-isolate until you are able to take a test.

Testing sites are open in Shadwell, Mile End and Isle of Dogs and Canary Wharf. Appointments at all these are available through the national booking site or by calling 119. Residents will be offered their nearest test site with availability when booking.

Rapid tests are available for people without symptoms, but who are worried about Covid-19. These tests provide initial results in under an hour and can indicate whether someone without symptoms might be carrying the virus. More information on these rapid tests and where to go is available on the council website.

Business support grants are available for eligible premises closed due to Covid-19 restrictions.

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