    No I don’t stay in Glasgow my point is my area has 40 cases vs Glasgow which has 400 but we are on level 3. Town I used to stay in last week reported zero cases which is crazy given we are living under tough restrictions get Fife is a lower level.

    I think that's a good move PM, I presented Mrs F with the stats and allowed her to decide whether she wants to shield again. Our Achilles Heel however is my daughter working in our local Spar.

    It goes by which area health board youre in, not towns etc. Ayrshire and Arran are under level 3 restrictions yet most of the towns and villages in these areas havent seen a positive case for weeks. They do, however, incorporate places like Kilmarnock, Irvine and Kilwinning which are larger towns so are seeing large amounts of cases.

    Just the way the cookie crumbles Im afraid.

    It's got worse. Overnight the cases have increased by five, which now makes our district purple on the map at https://coronavirus-staging.data.gov...nteractive-map

    You don't have to because you can control your own environment. You're doing the right thing, PM and hopefully your mental health will improve too.

    If we shut down schools, social distanced, and wore masks every flu season, there's be barely any flu every year. It shows that doing those things prevents the spread of respiratory illness...
