Haringey coronavirus (COVID-19) updates
As lockdown restrictions lift further this weekend, and more businesses begin to open, we want to remind residents that they should continue to work from home if they can, and reduce pressure on the public transport and road network by walking or cycling if possible, and by shopping locally.
If you must use public transport, please adhere to social distancing guidelines. Posters, signage, platform stickers and one-way systems have been installed across the TfL network, helping everyone to maintain social distancing.
Avoid peak travel times where possible and customers who do need to use public transport are asked to continue to avoid travelling during the peak times of 05:45–08:15 and 16:00–17:30 if they can. See the list of the busiest stations and bus areas to avoid hotspots.
You must wear a face covering for your entire journey. TfL has introduced an exemption card to support those customers who are exempt from wearing a face covering.
Everyone should wash or sanitise their hands at the beginning and at the end of their journey and carry hand sanitiser with them if they can.
As we prepare for further easing of lockdown at the weekend, Dr Will Maimaris urges everyone to continue to follow social distancing guidance and be responsible, to help prevent a second wave of the coronavirus spreading.

The council recently published a new draft local COVID-19 Outbreak Management Plan for Haringey, which outlines how the council will work with agencies and other parts of the public health system to prevent and manage any local outbreaks of COVID-19.
From 4 July, gatherings of more than 30 people will be permitted, but only in certain public places as set out in law.
This will include places of worship and their surrounding premises in a church, mosque, synagogue, temple or other place of worship where you can independently pray or hold a religious ceremony. There are however activities where it is advisable to restrict numbers to 30 within a place of worship for public health reasons.
The government have set out guidance for those activities as well as how to ensure your place of worship is COVID-19 secure - visit GOV.UK (external link) for all the information you need.
Whilst engaging in an activity in the place of worship or surrounding grounds, all parties should adhere to social distancing guidelines. From 4 July, 2 meters or 1 metre with risk mitigation (where 2 metres is not viable) between households are acceptable.
There are also new rules surrounding weddings and civil partnerships that will be allowed to take place from 4 July.
Gatherings of more than 30 people will be permitted but only in certain public places as set out in law. This will include all licensed venues where legal marriage ceremonies can take place however it is strongly advised that numbers are restricted to 30 for public health reasons.
Those operating venues following COVID-19 secure guidelines should take additional steps to ensure the safety of the public and prevent large gatherings or mass events from taking place.
