Camden Public Health coronavirus guidance

On Wednesday 2 December lockdown came to an end. London has moved back into a 'high' level of local COVID alert and there are new rules to follow. Below are the general measures provided by Camden County Council, where Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH) resides.

New rules to follow

Help keep each other safe and stop cases from rising even more by following the rules we give below:

  • Only socialise indoors with people you live with or those in your bubble. A support bubble is where a person who lives alone joins with another household. Households in that support bubble can still visit each other, stay overnight and visit public places together.
  • You can socialise outdoors with people who are not in your bubble or household in groups of up to 6
  • Work from home if you can
  • Walk or cycle where possible, plan ahead and avoid busy times and routes when traveling

Stay Safe

  • You must wear a face covering or mask in indoor public spaces unless you have a medical reason not to.
  • Wash your hands often and for 20 seconds  
  • Keep 2 metres away from people you don’t live with, where possible 

Look out for Symptoms

  • New, continuous cough 
  • High temperature
  • Change in your sense of smell or taste 

 Stay at home and get tested if you have the symptoms

  • You must self-isolate for 10 days 
  • Anyone you live with must self-isolate for 14 days 
  • You can ask for a test online at or by calling 119
