Cllr Steve Curran, Leader of Hounslow Council, said: “I know this is a very difficult and worrying time for many residents and businesses. We must all pull together over the tough winter ahead, as we have done throughout this pandemic, and support each other.

“London’s councils were not aware of the Government’s proposals until they were announced yesterday. However, be assured that we have been preparing for stricter measures and plans are in place. Our number one priority remains protecting our most vulnerable residents and, alongside our partners, we'll be doing all we can to support our local communities and businesses.

“As more details of the new measures are provided, we’ll share them with you and make them as clear as we can. Everyone has a personal responsibility to follow these measures to help keep themselves and other safe, so please do read through them. Sign up to our enewsletter - hounslow.gov.uk/covid-updates - for the latest updates.

“The coronavirus section of our website - www.hounslow.gov.uk/coronavirus - will be regularly updated with the latest information and advice, as will our social media channels.

“I know that if we keep working together as one Hounslow we’ll beat this virus and be the stronger for it.”
