Harrow Council has said reports of a Harrow lockdown are not true.

The council has made a statement dispelling rumours of a local lockdown in the borough on their website

The council's Director of Public Health, Carole Furlong said:

We are closely monitoring local and national situation and are in regular contact with both the NHS and Public Health England. Together we are working to do everything we can to stop the spread of the virus.

There is nothing to suggest there is a spike in Harrow. We’ve had fewer than 10 cases a week in June - and as lockdown eases we ask everyone to do their bit to help stop the spread by staying two metres apart, wearing face covering in confined spaces and washing their hands regularly for at least 20 seconds.
