Haringey coronavirus (COVID-19) updates
As of 1 August 2020, people deemed to be clinically extremely vulnerable can attend their places of work, so long as those workplaces have been made COVID-secure.
However, extremely vulnerable individuals should continue working from home wherever possible. The full guidance on working safely can be found here (external link).
The government’s guidance on accessing food if you are vulnerable (external link) has also been updated to reflect that essential food parcel deliveries ended on 31 July. Those who are on the supermarket priority list for food delivery slots will stay on the list after 31 July.
Our Connected Communities team is continuing to provide assistance and advice to those who are in need. If you’re struggling to deal with the non-medical effects of Covid-19, have a look at our Connected Communities page or call 020 8489 4431, Monday to Friday, 9am to 5pm.
Do you know a LGBTQI+ person who’s in need of assistance throughout the pandemic?
Local charity, WISE Thoughts is now offering a food and essentials parcel service for LGBTQI+ community members without access to resources. The service is funded by support from City Bridge Trust and The National Lottery Community Fund.
Applicants need to provide their details in this ‘new user registration form’. Please ensure that you answer each question, including those that are marked as not mandatory.
In order to qualify for the service, applicants must be:
• LGBTQI+ individuals
• not in receipt of financial support from other sources, i.e. unemployed
• have limited access to financial resources, i.e. self-employed, retired or not currently working.
At present, successful applicants will receive a single parcel of food and essential items delivered to the address of their choice.
If you have any further questions about the scheme, email firstname.lastname@example.org for further information.
All play areas and outdoor gyms are now open in Haringey parks.
They had been closed due to coronavirus, but following a programme of cleaning, new signage, risk assessments and the removal of miles of temporary fencing that had been erected, they are now available to use again.
Please continue to use all of our facilities responsibly to help prevent a second wave of coronavirus.
