Just announced at 6.10pm….Restrictions on visiting other households are being reintroduced again in the Glasgow area after an increase in cases of coronavirus in Central Belt.
First Minister Nicola Sturgeon announced the move after 66 new positive tests were recorded in the Greater Glasgow and Clyde area. The first minister is particularly concerned that the level of Covid is high in West Dunbartonshire, the City of Glasgow and East Renfrewshire.
Ms Sturgeon points out transmission appears mainly to be happening inside people’s homes and between households.
She announces that from midnight tonight if you live in local authority areas of West Dunbartonshire, the City of Glasgow and East Renfrewshire, you should not host other people from other households in your home.
More on this shortly.
