May 29th saw the start of easing out of lockdown with Scotland tentatively moving into Phase 1 .
It was good to see a few people on the golf course taking advantage of the easing and of the better weather in Orkney.
Despite all these weeks of lockdown the virus is still in the community as a new case was confirmed of Covid19 – taking Orkney’s numbers to 8 after remaining at 7 for so long.
If you have to self isolate and you have no friends or relations to help out there is a number to call which will direct you to local support services. You will be helped.
The 2 meters rule – that’s about 6 feet – should also be applied when you are out. This should still be for essential purposes only, to take exercise near your home, to shop and if you cannot do so from home to travel to your work.
