Tier 4 in parts of Scotland from Friday

This topic has been archived, and won't accept reply postings.

That's most of the Central Belt locking down from Friday 18:00 for three weeks.

Council areas going to Tier 4:

City of Glasgow, Renfrewshire, East Renfrewshire, East Dunbartonshire, West Dunbartonshire, North Lanarkshire, South Lanarkshire, East Ayrshire, South Ayrshire, Stirling, West Lothian.

They're also putting travel restrictions into law - it will become illegal to travel into or out of a tier 3 or 4 area, or between Scotland and other parts of the UK, for nonessential purposes (but with a fairly extensive list of exceptions here https://www.gov.scot/publications/coronavirus-covid-19-guidance-on-travel-and-transport/ - this has not changed yet, and currently permits travel up to 5 miles beyond your council area for outdoor exercise, but maybe it'll be updated)

Also, the two council areas of East Lothian and Midlothian will move from tier 3 to tier 2 on 24th November.

Damn! Walls closing and we just paid for a  one month new member deal at the TCA Newsroom for my wife.

A while ago someone posted a link to a really good site publishing C19 data for Scotland. Anyone got it now? Would like to monitor things in Glasgow.

OK, yeah, it's Level, sorry!

It could do with a rebrand, though. I propose:

Levels 4&3 -> Tiers of Despair

Levels 2&1 -> Tiers of Joy

Level 0 -> No More Tiers

Thanks. That will do but its not the one I was thinking of, which isn't an official NHS / PHS / gov one.

This is Public Health Scotland data so yes it is NHS Scotland sponsored by SG and COSLA, the URL and branding is weird and I suspect ad hoc from the platform they are using to get it up and running asap

I have sent you a message (you will understand why when you get it. Nothing bad)

Cheers Roger. Some interesting points. It just all feels a bit Tom Hanks in Castaway. Do we risk leaving the relative safety of the island hoping for rescue but not knowing what risks we will face.  Or stay, not knowing whether we will wither and die, or be rescued. 

I think we just get Nicola and Boris to flip a coin. Might be easier in the long run?

I wouldn't trust Boris with the coin. With luck he will be gone soon.
