Step Up For Hounslow!  

  

  • Surge testing and increased vaccination continues in Hounslow to help tackle a new COVID-19 variant of concern.  
  • We need everyone to play their part and to get PCR tested as soon as possible and to get vaccinated when they can.  
  • Kelly O’Neill, Director of Public Health for Hounslow, has released a statement this afternoon, saying: Following the national coverage of recently revised guidance we have met with national officials and confirmed there are no restrictions on travel in or out of Hounslow: There are no local lockdowns. In areas where the new COVID variant is spreading we are all working together to boost testing and vaccination and to support self-isolation. There are sensible public health precautions people can take as individuals in line with the sorts of advice we have all been following throughout the pandemic. We will keep sharing that and working with national officials to make sure people understand what they need to think about as they go about their daily lives.”  
  • The statement from Kelly O’Neill followed a meeting with national officials. Earlier today Leader of Hounslow Council, Cllr Steve Curran, had issued a statement making clear his concerns about the nature and handling of the Government’s travel guidance. You can read a copy of his statement here:

  • We have been door-knocking again today in the Hounslow West area of the borough (staff are carrying appropriate I.D), delivering PCR tests and leaving letters with information and details of support for anyone who is not at home.  
  • We will be expanding to other parts of the borough over the coming days and more details will be made available on an on-going basis. 

 

Travelling to school safely

It is likely that the roads and public transport system will be busier than when students returned in March, given other businesses have reopened.

Please see guidelines below:

  • If you live a short distance from school, walk, cycle or scoot to and from school wherever it is possible and safe to do so.
  • Avoid sharing a car with anyone outside of your household or support bubble.
  • If you are using public transport to get to school, plan ahead and allow more time for your journey
  • When you are travelling by public or dedicated school transport, don’t forget to:
  • Wear a face covering (unless you are exempt – including if you are aged 11 and under).  It is important you wear them for the entirety of your journey, including inside a bus or train station.
  • Social distance where possible
  • Wash or sanitise your hands regularly
  • Be considerate to fellow passengers and staff

Further information can be found in our guidance on transport to school and other places of education.

The Department for Transport has also created resources that can be downloaded and used by education settings to promote safe travel to school.​

Latest information

 

We know there are many people in Hounslow who want to help in the effort to support our most vulnerable residents as we try to manage the spread of coronavirus. The Hounslow Community Hub is here to harness that fantastic community spirit, and ensure the borough’s most at risk and isolated people receive the food supplies they need and other essential support, which may range from befriending to more complex care. 

The priority of the Hub for now is to protect the most isolated and vulnerable individuals identified and contacted by the NHS to be ‘shielded’. These residents have serious long-term health conditions and it’s vital we ensure there are support networks in place to so they’re looked after. The Hub is also there for anyone else vulnerable and isolated who may not have been contacted by the NHS.      

The Council will be working with voluntary and community partners, businesses and local volunteers to make sure these people are kept well and safe.

For more information and to volunteer to help, please go to www.hounslow.gov.uk/hub. If someone you know needs this urgent support, the Community Support Hub can be contacted on 020 7084 9697 or hub@hounslow.gov.uk
