Tower

Mayor and local MPs release important video message

Mayor John Biggs has joined Rushanara Ali, MP for Bethnal Green and Bow and Apsana Begum, MP for Poplar and Limehouse to deliver a message to the community of Tower Hamlets.

The video follows London’s classification as a high risk area under the government’s Covid-19 local alert system. Together, they’ve urged people to follow the rules and play their part in keeping themselves, their families and their communities safe.

With cases of Covid-19 increasing rapidly in London, their plea is as important as ever.


High alert rules and updates for those who were shielding

Based on infection and risk, London is now at a high alert level and has tier 2 restrictions in place, which mean households cannot mix indoors. This includes that you can’t visit other homes or mix with other households in places like restaurants, bars or cafés. You should also minimise journeys and work from home if you can.

For residents that were shielding:

People with serious underlying health conditions who are most at risk of severe illness from Covid-19 were previously told by the government to self-isolate. However, the shielding programme was paused, and those people are not currently advised to shield. We have updated our local advice for people who were shielding and steps they can follow to take extra precautions.


Remember the basics to help tackle Covid-19

In addition to the measures that come with being in a high risk area, we must continue to take every step we can to stay safe:

  • Wash your hands regularly, for at least 20 seconds. If soap and water is not available, then use hand sanitiser.
  • Wear a face covering on public transport, in shops and other enclosed areas, or anywhere it is difficult to socially distance.
  • Keep a safe distance from other people outside your household (two metres where possible).
  • Book a free test if you’re experiencing any symptoms of Covid-19 and stay at home until you get your result.
  • Stay at home if you test positive for 10 days from when symptoms started. This includes while symptomatic and waiting to arrange a test.
  • Self-isolate if you’re identified as a close or recent contact of someone who has tested positive through NHS Test and Trace.
