As we all continue to abide by Scottish Government’s guidance, during the Covid-19 pandemic, my office remains physically closed to the public until further notice. My weekly face-to-face surgeries are also still unfortunately unable to take place.
I appreciate your cooperation and hope to return to normal service as soon as possible.
Mainland Scotland and some islands are in lockdown level 4 restrictions with guidance to stay at home, except for essential purposes. These restrictions will remain in place until at least mid-February.
If you do have to go out for an essential purpose, please remember:
- Face coverings in enclosed spaces
- Avoid crowded places
- Clean hands and surfaces regularly
- Two metre distancing; and
- Self-isolate and book a test if you have symptoms.
