The government has announced that London is entering Tier 3 – very high alert – from Wednesday morning, 16 December.
With cases of COVID-19 rising so rapidly this change is necessary to stop the virus spreading in bars and restaurants and other places where people might mix. While shops remain open, we urge you to be extra careful to prevent transmission in the run up to Christmas.
Remember, you are potentially infectious for 10 days after getting Covid-19, even if you do not have any symptoms.
It remains critically important to avoid mixing with other households inside - as this is one of the main ways that infection is rising again in our borough.

These restrictions are disruptive to both residents and businesses but they are in place to keep us all safe. Tower Hamlets Council are continuing to work with the government to increase testing and make the case for adequate economic support for Tower Hamlets.
