Summer isn’t cancelled!
This summer holiday may be a bit different from normal, but that doesn’t mean it has to be any less fun.
Young Hackney’s Summer Guide 2020 is out now, and is the one-stop shop for all the exciting stuff going on throughout the summer for anyone in Hackney up to the age of 19.
And some of these activities are taking place on Hackney’s estates. As well as their online sessions, The Mentoring Lab are running a series of outdoor activities four days a week on the Frampton Park Estate, Jack Dunning Estate, Nisbet House and the Nightingale Estate – and they’re all free for Hackney Council residents.
Do you know how to get a Covid test?
If you experience symptoms of coronavirus, as well isolating (staying at home) for 7 days, you need to take a test to confirm if you have the virus. If this test is positive, a contact tracer from NHS Test and Trace will get in touch to give advice, identify your close contacts, and ask you to self isolate for 14 days.
You can book a test online from the NHS or by calling 119.
Recent data showed that 46% of Londoners don’t know how to get a coronavirus test, increasing among some groups, such as older people.
That’s why it’s more important than ever to know how to get a test and help keep London safe, keep Hackney safe and keep your neighbours safe.

We’ve put measures in place to continue safely managing our homes and supporting our residents through the coronavirus pandemic.
These measures – and the services for residents – will change in response to the pandemic and guidance from government.
We’ll continue to keep you informed through this e-newsletter, the Hackney Life and Hackney Today publications, and on the dedicated webpage for Council residents.
