Whilst we have been working hard to support everyone who lives, works or studies in the borough during these difficult times, we have not stopped our efforts to make our borough more sustainable. Therefore, we are contacting you with an update on two sustainability initiatives – the launch of our new Climate Action Plan and an invitation to respond to our fuel-burning survey.
According to this article in the Camden New Journal, 500 healthy staff at UCLH will take part in a trial of a Covid-19 vaccine. It will try to see whether healthy people can be protected from coronavirus by the vaccine.
Test samples will be analysed at the Francis Crick Institute in Somers Town.
During the coronavirus pandemic, funding has been made available to house rough sleepers in hotels, under the “Everyone In” scheme. 160 rough sleepers are currently being housed by Camden Council in temporary accommodation.
Despite rumours that the Westminster Government are not going to continue the scheme once the current funding runs out, the Council have confirmed that funding will continue for at least the next three months.
