London’s COVID-19 Transition Board meets for first time

The London Transition Board, to coordinate London’s transition from lockdown to recovery from Covid-19, met for the first time today (9 June 2020) – jointly chaired by the Secretary of State for Housing, Communities and Local Government and the Mayor of London.

The Board, made up of senior leaders from across the capital working with central government, will provide strategic direction for the next phase of the response to COVID-19 as London begins to reopen its economy while still controlling the virus.

Discussion at the meeting today focused on infection control and testing and how the capital is responding to the biggest challenges relating to COVID-19. Key themes the Board would focus on over the coming months, including the safe reopening of businesses, transport and the use of public space, and the challenges faced in health and social care were also discussed.
