A Message from Kelly O'Neill, Director of Public Health

Kelly O'Neill

"COVID-19 positive cases numbers continue to rise in Hounslow, and now stand at around 180 per 100,000 population. It is clearer by the day that we must all step up our efforts to follow the rules and to control the virus.

"It is a particular worry that we are seeing the numbers rising among our more vulnerable, especially the elderly. This half term it is critical that we all stick to the rules. Let's not risk the lives of our loved ones."

Enjoy Hallowe'en safely

We want it to be easy for residents to say 'no thank you' if they do not wish to take part in this year's Hallowe'en festivities. We have designed a poster to download and print for residents who want to make clear they are following the rules, or self-isolating.

Remember that if you are taking part you must follow the rule of six, wear a face covering & keep a safe distance from others. 

We have also made some Hallowe'en-themed colouring pages for younger children who want to join in the Trick or Treat spirit, without putting others at risk.
