« Allowing restaurants to resume selling alcohol in Level 2 areas and being able to open in Level 3 areas will be a relief for business owners who continue to face enormous uncertainty. p>

« They will always experience huge losses of income and it is vital that local authorities and the Scottish and UK governments work together to ensure that support is in place for those who need it

« There are local hotel businesses that are on the verge of collapse and assistance needs to be provided quickly. Locally we can do our part to try to support them

“The Prime Minister is calling on locals, especially those living along the border of West Dunbartonshire and Argyll and Bute, not to travel between these areas or even Glasgow for any purpose. except essential

« This will only lead to an increase in the number of cases and increase the likelihood of transmission

« I encourage everyone to follow these new sets of restrictions – I know they disrupt our lives tremendously and we all want to get back to a sense of normalcy

« These levels are in place to keep us safe and we hope to begin to see the benefits of our sacrifices when the number of cases drops and fewer lives are lost »

So I can sit and have a meal between 4:00 p.m. and 8:00 p.m. with another couple to eat and drink, but I can’t go and sit at my house with them Absolute joke and they expect people follow the rules Why do football matches still take place? Why are professional athletes exempt from the 14-day travel quarantine? Let’s just protect the vulnerable and let the rest of us get on with our lives
