There is a a lot of help and information available about Covid-19 (Coronavirus), from the World Health Organisation to every media outlet in the country. Dumfries and Galloway Council (https://www.dumgal.gov.uk/SupportDG) and Third Sector Dumfries and Galloway ( http://thirdsectordumgal.org.uk/) are supporting local communities, co-ordinating volunteers and providing local information.

The government advice from Scottish government (https://www.gov.scot/coronavirus-covid-19/ ) is clear:

Protect yourself and others:

  • stay at home
  • only go outside for essential food, health and work reasons
  • stay 2 metres (6 feet) away from other people
  • wash your hands regularly                
  • wash your hands as soon as you get home
