Welcome to this week’s edition of your community bulletin.
As we head into winter, we’re currently at an absolutely crucial point in our fight against COVID-19.
Worryingly, the numbers of confirmed cases, hospital admissions and deaths are rising again across Scotland, including here in Dumfries and Galloway.
If we’re to avoid even greater lockdown restrictions, it’s absolutely vital that we stick to the latest advice and guidance to protect ourselves and others.
Please wear a face covering when required, avoid crowded places, clean hands and surfaces regularly, stay 2 metres away from other people, and self-isolate and book a test if you have COVID-19 symptoms (a new continuous cough, fever, loss/change of smell/taste).
Only by all working together will we be able to defeat COVID-19: stay safe, protect others, save lives.
