“I want to be as clear as possible with Londoners – social distancing measures are still in place. Lockdown hasn’t been lifted and we all still need to play our part in stopping the spread of COVID-19. You must still stay at home as much as possible and keep a safe two-metre distance from other people at all times when you are out. Everyone must continue to work from home if they possibly can. You must not use public transport for any unnecessary journeys. If you really have to travel, please avoid rush hour. Please walk or cycle whenever possible.

“We still have a long way to go to defeat this virus and we have not returned to life as it was before.

“The Government has set out a gradual approach to bring the UK out of the current lockdown, carefully monitoring the impact at each stage. This is essential for avoiding a disastrous second peak that could overwhelm our NHS.

“I’m working hard to prepare London for the next phase of this crisis, and the huge challenges we face around social distancing on our busy transport network and in workplaces. I am determined that London’s recovery will be green with bold new measures to support walking and cycling in our city.

“I urge the Government to continue to work with employers, employees and trades unions to design a proper plan for how we can keep everyone safe as they return to work.

“All Londoners must continue to abide by the rules, and stay home as much as possible, so that we can continue to save lives and protect the NHS.”
