Haringey coronavirus (COVID-19) updates
We have entered a National lockdown, with the majority of businesses and services being asked to close, to help to curb the number of coronavirus cases across the country.
To help you understand what this means for specific business sectors we have created a webpage with the latest guidance, which is updated regularly in line with the government rules and guidance issued.
The key message is to stay at home, but if you are unable to do so, or unsure what the rules are for your specific business, you can find the latest information on our COVID-19 business support webpage.
We are also updating the information regarding the support available to businesses through grants and other support schemes, the latest information can be found on our COVID-19 Grant Schemes webpage.
We want to reassure individuals if you're at risk, or those experiencing domestic abuse, that support services remain available during this difficult time.
If you're at risk you can get support by calling the freephone, 24 hour National Domestic Abuse Helpline number – 0808 2000 247 – run by Refuge, and visiting National Domestic Abuse Helpline (external link)
Local support is available in Haringey, you can ring the Haringey Domestic Abuse Helpline on 0300 012 0213, available Monday to Friday, 10am-5.30pm or email HaringeyIDVA@niaendingviolence.org.uk
Support is available and you are not alone during this period.
Following the government’s announcement that the country is now in a national lockdown we will need to make changes to the library services on offer.
Marcus Garvey and Wood Green Libraries will remain open to the public for limited services. Hornsey Library will be closed for now but we will be reviewing the situation over the next week in the hope of reopening the library with a limited service. All other libraries in the borough will be closed for the duration of the lockdown.
Library users will be able to access stock through ‘Click and Collect’ services at our open libraries via Ready Read pre-orders, online reservations or by calling our telephone line on 020 8489 2700. Please do not simply turn up at the libraries.
There will be no overdue book fines charged during this lockdown period, so that customers can order and borrow books and not worry about potential penalties, during a difficult time for us all.
We will continue the Home Library Service for our most vulnerable users.
At present we are not offering access to public computers in our libraries, but we are reviewing how to do so in future in a safe manner for those who need digital access the most.
Please continue to check our libraries page for the latest news on our services.
