As can be seen in this edition of Community, the number of Covid cases in our region has declined in the last week but our local health colleagues are worried that the number is still too high.
In other parts of Scotland, such as Highlands and Tayside, high case numbers are a major concern and significantly impacting on our already stretched NHS. Clearly, we’re experiencing a third wave.
So, it’s vital that we all continue to follow appropriate guidance, even once fully vaccinated, isolate along with our household if required, and get tested if we experience any symptoms.
We mustn’t risk the progress we’ve made. Please continue to be very cautious, follow the latest guidelines, and stick to the FACTS.
