Welcome to this week’s edition of your community bulletin.
This week, the First Minister set out the new measures to get COVID-19 back under control in Scotland.
So, visiting other households will not be permitted.
There are exceptions for those living alone, or alone with children, who form extended households; for couples in non-cohabiting relationships; for the provision of informal childcare by, for example, grandparents; and for tradespeople.
In public indoor spaces you can meet with one other household only and in groups of no more than 6 people. This is the same as before.
From today (Friday), pubs, bars and restaurants will be required to close at 10pm.
We know this is tough, but this change comes as the number of COVID-19 cases are increasing both nationally and within Dumfries and Galloway.
Stick to the rules, and take care of each other.
