London Councils respond to Tier 2 restrictions

London Councils have released a joint statement today (Oct 15) that aims to pull communities together in light of the news that London will be put into the High Category restrictions.

In the statement, Chair of London Councils, Cllr Georgia Gould, said: 

“The number of Covid-19 cases in London is increasing rapidly. We understand that this is a very difficult and worrying time for all Londoners - our communities, residents and businesses.

“These new restrictions are absolutely essential to keep London safe. By following them together we can all play our part in keeping ourselves, our families and communities safe, and ensure London’s economy is protected as much as possible.”

“The London boroughs stand together with Londoners in the fight against Covid-19, and we are working together with the Mayor and the government to balance the public health, economic and social impacts of this virus. London Councils and the Mayor are asking the government for economic support for London’s businesses and the boroughs to ensure that these new measures are a success.

“Now is the time to pull together to beat the virus so that ultimately we can get our city working again and back to its creative and energetic self as soon as possible.”

The new restrictions mean that households will no longer be allowed to mix in London in any indoor setting, whether that be a private household or a pub.
