COVID-19 previous updates - 14 April

Haringey Council has announced an £8.1million emergency response fund to provide urgent support to our residents, businesses, suppliers and staff.
In particular, the funding will help the council to provide essential support and urgent services to our most vulnerable people and key services during the coronavirus pandemic.
This will include additional support to social care providers, supporting the Clinical Commissioning Group in discharging and keeping people out of hospital, processing increased benefit or hardship claims and delivering food to the vulnerable.
We want to say a big thank you to all those who followed social distancing guidelines at our parks over the Easter Bank Holiday weekend.
Our teams carried out patrols in partnership with local police, and the reports were largely positive. By following the rules you are helping us to keep our parks open, protect the NHS, and save lives.
The increased patrols and engagement will continue and we would urge our community to continue to follow the government guidelines.
As a reminder - you can use our parks once a day for exercise. When you are out, please stay at least 2m apart. If you are running or cycling, please do so responsibly and make sure you keep your distance from others.
Other than that, please stay home, save lives. Thank you.
The coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak may cause children and young people to experience a range of emotions during this difficult time- some may react right away, while others may show signs of difficulty later on.
They might feel anxious about what they see on the news, upset that they can no longer see their friends or worried about the long-term impact of not going to school.
As parents and carers, you’ll need to support them through this uncertain time and make sure they feel safe and loved, as well as answer difficult questions and, in some cases, set new boundaries.
London’s digital wellbeing service, Good Thinking (external website) has information that can help parents and carers to support children and young people at this difficult time.
Bereavement is a difficult experience under any situation. During the coronavirus outbreak, those who experience loss as a consequence to COVID-19, or another cause, may experience increased trauma and could be cut off from some of their usual support network.
Very sadly, some families may not have had the opportunity to say goodbye to their loved ones before they died, which can be particularly upsetting.
The bereavement care charity Cruse is helping families affected by coronavirus. You can find a broad range of guidance, including easy read fact sheets, on the Cruse website (external link). You can also contact the charity’s free national helpline on 0808 808 1677 or email them at email@example.com
