COVID-19

People in West Dunbartonshire face additional restrictions from 2 September 2020

The Scottish Government has announced local restrictions in West Dunbartonshire to control the spread of COVID-19. The Council is following guidance from Public Health Scotland and the Scottish Government.

New guidance states:

  • Residents should not meet with people from other households in indoor settings in any authority.
  • If any resident is identified as a close contact of a positive case of COVID-19, their whole household should self-isolate for 14 days
  • Indoor visits to hospitals and care homes will be limited to essential visits only to protect the most vulnerable.

These restrictions are expected to be in place for 14 days but reviewed after 7 days. For further details on local measures can be found on the Scottish Government website.

In keeping with the latest Covid-19 guidance, all our schools and nurseries will be open as normal.

Everyone should remember the FACTS guidance:

F - Face coverings. These should be used in shops and on public transport (buses, trains and taxis)

A - Avoid crowded places.

C - Clean your hands frequently, using water & soap whenever possible.

T - Two metres - observe physical distancing.

S - Self-isolate and book a test if you are suffering from COVID-19 symptoms.
