Haringey coronavirus (COVID-19) updates
COVID-19 infection rates are increasing across Haringey, with an increase in new cases of 70 above the number reported last week. The Delta variant (first originated from India) is the dominant variant for new cases. This variant is shown to be more transmissible than the previously dominant Kent variant.
129,572 (63%) people in Haringey have now had at least their first dose of a COVID-19 vaccination, while 74,827 (36%) people have had both doses. The NHS is inviting all residents aged 25+ to get vaccinated. Please make sure you get vaccinated when it is your turn.
To protect yourself and others, please continue to follow public health guidance:
Wash your hands regularly, use a face covering when social distancing is not possible and try to keep your distance from those not in your household. Please remember that it is safest to meet people outdoors in the fresh air because COVID-19 particles are blown away.
Following these simple steps could make a significant difference in reducing the transmission of Covid-19 and help protect you and your friends, colleagues and family from the virus. Let’s all play our part to #KeepHaringeySafe

We’ve launched an exciting social media campaign to celebrate everyone across Haringey who’s getting vaccinated to help protect themselves and their loved ones from COVID-19.
We want to encourage everyone who lives and works in the borough to share that they’ve had their vaccine and show everyone how proud they are.
When it’s your turn to get the COVID-19 vaccine, make sure you get involved by:
- Sharing a picture or video of yourself getting the jab, with your vaccine card, or wearing your vaccination sticker
- Telling us why you’re proud to be vaccinated (e.g. to protect your loved ones, to help get the world back to normal etc.)
- Tagging us on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram: @HaringeyCouncil
- And including the hashtag #ProudToProtect
Keep a look out, we’ll be re-sharing some of your pictures on our social media platforms.
By telling those around you that you’ve had your jab, you’ll be encouraging others to have it when it’s their turn. So, thank you for doing your part to help to #KeepHaringeySafe
