Latest Government guidance
Hounslow’s approach to the Government’s four-step roadmap out of lockdown
The UK will be coming out of lockdown over the course of the next few months following the Government's four-step roadmap announcement.
For now, nothing has changed. Hounslow and the rest of the country is under national lockdown. 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 21 June.
Important information for residents shielding
The Government has announced that more people, who may be at increased risk of being seriously unwell from COVID-19, will need to shield for six weeks (until 31 March, 2021) to protect themselves from the virus.
This decision is based on new technology which has developed the criteria for identifying who is at most risk.
We all need to act responsibly, think of others and play our part to keep ourselves and the most vulnerable safe.
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.
