Responding to reports that London will move into tier 2 this weekend, Local London Assembly Member Andrew Dismore AM said:
“No one really wants to implement further restrictions, but there is a real need to do so. This is essential if we’re to slow down the rate of infections in our communities and save lives. In recent days we’ve seen cases rising in all London Boroughs, and so this is a necessary step.
“This is a really tough time for Londoners and London businesses. Many people will be worried about their livelihoods, as well as their safety and that of their loved ones.
“We do need these additional measures to protect our city, each other and the NHS. We also need adequate financial support for those businesses and workers badly impacted by this pandemic.
“I’m urging all Londoners to adhere to these new restrictions, as hard as they are. We must all work together to stop the spread of the virus and ultimately save lives.”
