Keep Southwark Safe

Londoners have played a central role in controlling Covid-19 by following the government guidelines but new cases of coronavirus in the city are on the rise with the new Delta variant. We must remain vigilant to keep London safe. You can help by maintaining social distancing, wearing a mask, isolating if you are asked to and getting vaccinated. There will be new guidance on MONDAY 19th of JULY

If you think you have COVID-19 symptoms, self-isolate and get a test immediately by calling 119 or visiting

Symptoms include:

  • A high temperature
  • A new, continuous cough, or
  • A loss or change to your sense of smell or taste.

You and anyone you live with must stay at home (self-isolate) until you get your result.

If your test is positive, you must self-isolate.

If you had a test because you had symptoms, keep self-isolating for at least 10 days from when your symptoms started.

If you had a test but have not had symptoms, self-isolate for 10 days from when you had the test.

Anyone you live with, and anyone in your support bubble, must self-isolate for 14 days from when you start self-isolating.

If NHS Test and Trace gets in touch to say you have been in contact with someone with COVID-19, you must follow their instructions and stay at home for 14 days.

All of this will help keep your local community, your borough and London as a city, a safe and healthy place to live.
