COVID-19 – information to keep yourself safe and to help your community

Coronavirus: do not leave your home

Everyone must stay at home to help stop the spread of coronavirus. For the latest advice on keeping you and your family safe, please check regularly.

We want to urge everyone to stick to the restrictions imposed by the UK Government. The message could not be more important – stay at home and you will save lives. These measures are essential to all of us protecting our friends, family and neighbours as well as our NHS at this very difficult time. By following the official advice you will play a vital part in the battle against the virus.

Coronavirus is a huge challenge to every aspect of life in Lambeth. The council and our incredible team of staff are working extremely hard with our NHS, voluntary sector, businesses, and other partners to limit health, social and economic hard to our residents and to plan for what comes next.
