Coronavirus: Weekly update from Camden Council leader Georgia Gould


03 June, 2021 — By Cllr Georgia Gould


I hope those who’ve been on half-term this week have found something to get up to in Camden.

With much of the borough reopening, there’s lots to get involved with as we look forward to the summer, from visiting our amazing high streets to taking part in COVID-secure activities, such as the annual Camden Summer University, which you can read more about below.

As the weather is finally warming up and people are getting more out and about, I’d encourage you to make regular rapid lateral flow testing part of your weekly routine.

You can pick up tests or have them delivered to you and get results in 30 to 45 minutes. It’s an important way to make sure you’re keeping those around you safe as 1 in 3 people who have COVID-19 don’t have symptoms.

Finally, happy Pride month. Keep your eye out for activities to get involved with in Camden – let’s stand together in celebration and continued support of our LGBTQI+ communities.

Councillor Georgia Gould, Leader of Camden Council
