Coronavirus (COVID-19): local protection levels

The news that Inverclyde shall remain at level 3 is welcomed. There was an argument that could have meant that we were moved to level 4 and had that decision been made, then of course we would have respected it but we were not and we must now set our target as level 2.

Level 3 will help many local businesses but unfortunately not all. We must act as individuals in a responsible fashion to protect our community and ensure that we do not place a greater burden on the NHS and all frontline workers. That is the path to level 2. Please be patient, be strong and we shall all get there together.

As always, please follow F.A.C.T.S – wear a face covering; avoid crowded places; clean hands and surfaces regularly; stay 2m away from other people and self-isolate and book a test if you have COVID-19 symptoms.
