Last year Hampstead and Highgate had entered a second Covid lockdown in a bid to protect the NHS from a possible patient surge.
But despite a now higher rate of Covid-19 cases in the borough - compared to last autumn - there has been no suggestion of further restrictions to ease pressure on health services.
On October 31 last year, Prime Minister Boris Johnson outlined plans for a second lockdown which began on November 5.
And recently, health secretary Sajid Javid has said booster vaccines are best way to keep people safe and help the NHS.
