As the COVID-19 pandemic continues, East Lothian has been placed in Protection Level 3.
This highlights that the virus continues to present a significant risk to local people with a number of restrictions in place affecting the way we live our lives – including meeting up with people, hospitality and travel.
There is no room for complacency and it’s vital that everyone continues to follow important public health advice including remembering ‘FACTS’:
- Face coverings – wear a face covering in shops and on public transport
- Avoid crowded places
- Clean your hands regularly
- Two metre distance – maintain physical distancing from people outwith your household
- Self-isolate and book a test if you have symptoms
Remember to book a test if you have symptoms and stay at home if you are asked to self-isolate.
Help is available for people who are self-isolating and requiring extra support. Find out more.
