Cllr Curran

“We are delighted for the sake of residents and businesses that the Government has clarified their travel guidance after calls from all eight areas designated for surge testing and vaccination, who recognised the issues and worked together to ensure common sense prevailed. 

“Confusion caused by changes in the guidance last Friday brought great inconvenience, worry and concern to many Hounslow residents and businesses, and on top of this, it distracted Council staff and NHS colleagues from the delivery of the surge testing and vaccination programme which is our top priority.  

"We encourage every resident in Hounslow and London to be tested and vaccinated as soon as possible. This is the only way we will beat the virus.”
