Haringey coronavirus (COVID-19) updates
Weddings and civil partnerships are still facing a number of strict measures under updated government guidelines released yesterday.
Up to 30 people can attend a marriage or civil partnership, where this can be safely accommodated with social distancing in a COVID-19 secure venue. This includes the couple, guests and third parties such as photographers and security.
Wedding receptions or parties should not currently be taking place. In line with wider social distancing guidance any celebration after the ceremony should involve no more than two households in any location or, up to 6 people from different households if outdoors.
A previously planned relaxation in restrictions to allow a total of 30 people to attend wedding receptions from 1 August has now been put back until 15 August at the earliest.
Read the full guidance on the government website.
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.
