As Havering and the rest of London move into tier 3 as from tomorrow, our Council Leader has urged local residents to please follow government rules and help stop the spread of Covid. With Havering cases continuing to rise Councillor Damian White told the Havering Daily:
“It is vital that we all stick to the government guidelines and please make sure we are washing our hands, social distancing and wearing a mask, unless you are exempt. Avoid unnecessary mixing if you can and please follow the rules. Our Covid rates are significant and everyone in the borough has a part to play to help reduce these. We are so close to defeating this virus with the vaccine that it is really important that we all pull together as a community and help stop the spread. We must make sure we are not putting our family members at risk and make sure that we do not allow this virus to make a terrible impact on our community.”
As from one minute past minute on Wednesday Havering and London will move into tier 3. Please see the council guidelines below for what this means.
