London has been added to England’s Covid-19 watchlist, a group representing the capital’s councils says.
A statement from London Councils says: “It is a stark reminder that now is the time for all Londoners to pull together and take action to keep themselves, their families and their communities safe, and to ensure that London’s economy is protected.”
It says there are “no additional measures at this stage” but it urges “all Londoners to work together and abide by the national restrictions announced on Tuesday”.
This includes office workers working from home and wearing face coverings in taxis and private hire vehicles.
Public Health England is expected to formally confirm the areas on the watchlist later
