Covid 19 Update

Scotland has had a tier system recently with restrictions depending on the rate of infection in that area, we are tier 2 in the Borders, the main impact for me being no non household visitors indoors (though there is an amnesty for five days over Christmas).  As time has gone on people have started to bend the rules a little, I don't believe there is the same sense of community and compliance that was seen during the first lockdown.  Today's big news has been the approval of the first of the vaccines for the UK, with the first vaccines scheduled to be administered in Scotland on the 8th of December.  A glimmer of hope that there may be some sort of normality in 2021.

It is interesting to read about your restrictions and tiers put in place for Covid-19. In my state of the US, it is a free for all. It is a political fight even on the state level.
I hear so often that we the people know what is best for us.

My husband and I are the only two in our household. We decided to go as strict as possible and impose our own restrictions.
We don't travel any more on holidays to see relatives so not too much will change for us.
