Step up for Hounslow! Surge testing and increased vaccinations

This is not an immediate cause for serious alarm, but equally it is not a time for complacency.

Find out how we’re stepping up to ensure that COVID-19 testing and vaccinations across Hounslow are easily accessible for all.

Latest Government guidance

Roadmap out of lockdown

The government has announced a 4-week pause at Step 3 of the roadmap out of lockdown. Lockdown rules are expected to lift on Monday 19 July when we move into Step 4.  

Step 3 restrictions currently remain in place. Visit the Gov.uk - website which explains what you can and cannot do.

Residents must continue to follow the restrictions, get tested regularly regardless of symptoms, and encourage each other to take the vaccine when we are offered it . 

These are the things we need to do so we don't lose this opportunity and ensure there is a chance to return to normal life on 19 July.


As well as following the national rules, it’s also important we all keep doing the basics - wear a face covering, wash your hands regularly and keep a 2m distance from others.
