Haringey coronavirus (COVID-19) updates
On Monday (11 January), central government updated its guidance for landlords and tenants following the introduction of a national lockdown.
Measures to prevent the enforcement of evictions in England and Wales have been extended. The ban on bailiff evictions will be pushed back until at least 21 February, for all but the most egregious cases. These measures will be kept under review.
For more information on current possession action rules and to see the full government guidance, see here.
The UK Government has announced that by 15 February 2021, the first dose of COVID-19 vaccinations should have been offered to everyone in the top four priority groups as identified by the Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation (JCVI).
These initial priority groups are:
- all residents in a care home for older adults and their carers
- all those 80 years of age and over and frontline health and social care workers
- all those 75 years of age and over
- all those 70 years of age and over and clinically extremely vulnerable individuals
The vaccine will then be offered more widely in order of age and risk, with the Government aiming to vaccinate all adults by the autumn.
As of 11 January, over 2 million people in the UK have been vaccinated, with over 5,000 of these in Haringey. There are currently three COVID-19 vaccines that have been approved for use by the Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA).
For more information about these vaccines and how they will be deployed please see the UK COVID-19 vaccines delivery plan (external link).
Action Fraud is warning the public to remain vigilant following a rise in reports of scam text messages being received by the public in recent months, purporting to be from the NHS.
To protect yourself from scammers, please remember that the vaccine is free of charge. The NHS will also never ask you for bank or card details or for information about your pin number, banking passwords, or personal identity documents.
If you receive a call you believe to be fraudulent, hang up. If you are suspicious about an email you have received, forward it to firstname.lastname@example.org. Suspicious text messages should be forwarded to the number 7726.
