Haringey coronavirus (COVID-19) updates
Advice on how to move home, including how to do property viewings safely during the Covid-19 pandemic, has been issued by the Government.
Prospective buyers and renters are being advised that many estate agents have changed their operations to offer virtual viewings in the first instance.
The guide also suggests that home-owners may want to require that anyone coming to visit their property should wear a face covering.
Above all the advice is that everyone from vendors to clients should allow the process to take longer than normal and to be flexible in their plans.

Haringey Council, working with schools, teachers and council staff, is supporting children and young people to return to school safely in September, through the Streetspace School Programme.
Transport for London (TfL) has supported Haringey to provide additional Streetspace for Schools across the borough, using funding that the council has successfully bid for, to make it safer and easier for people to maintain social distancing through active travel.
This work includes the use of banners and barriers along the carriageway to widen pavements outside some schools, allowing teachers, adults and pupils to arrive at school safely. These barriers will be installed ready for school terms to commence at the beginning of September 2020 and checked daily for safety.
Walking maps will also be shared around all schools, showing safe travel routes, and a number of walking initiatives encouraging a walking commute to school will launch. Competitions to promote cycling, cycling schemes and active travel training will also be introduced as part of the programme – to encourage a strong and long-term take up of active travel.
In Haringey, additional school buses will run across at least 24 high frequency bus routes between 07:30-09:30 and 14:30-16:30, until at least the end of October – this includes the W3 route, a main route for secondary school students in the borough – an additional 7 routes will also see more buses added.

Across London we are seeing an increase in young people testing positive for Coronavirus.
In recent weeks the numbers of people aged 20 to 29 has been going up right across the capital.
Although you may not feel ill yourself, you can pass it on to others, who may be more seriously affected.
So please play your part in helping us to keep the deadly virus under control and keep London safe and out of lockdown.
It matters for you, it matters for your loved ones, it matters for your community.
Do your bit and stay socially distant, wash your hands more regularly, and wear a mask when in an enclosed public space. Thank you.
