Due to the recent restrictions announced by the First Minister, the following areas will move to level 4 from Friday 20th November 2020.
These council areas are the City of Glasgow, Renfrewshire, East Renfrewshire, East Dunbartonshire, West Dunbartonshire, North Lanarkshire, South Lanarkshire, East Ayrshire, South Ayrshire, Stirling, and West Lothian. The measures began at 1800 on Friday, will be in place for three weeks, and are due to be lifted on 11th December.
First Minister Nicola Sturgeon also announced that travel restrictions will be put into law to prevent people who live in a Level 3 or Level 4 local authority area from travelling outside their local authority except for an essential purpose – such as essential work or caring responsibilities. The regulations are also in force for non-essential travel into a Level 3 or 4 local authority area, except for the same reasons.
With Covid-19 cases increasing at an alarming rate this measure is an attempt to arrest the increase and we appreciate your adherence to the new regulations.
