Community Elements welcomes Brian's Good News.

We also give Covid 19 advice and  information about services available to people during lockdown. 

Covid advice.

From 15 June it’s mandatory to wear a face mask in shops and other public places.  Its likely that the First Minister Nicola Sturgeon will institute something similar soon. It’s to be stressed that the face covering is there to stop the wearer from passing the virus on to others. If you are showing signs of the virus such as loss of taste or smell, fever and new dry cough you should self isolate for up to 14 days. 

During the pandemic, social distancing of 2 m and regular hand washing is strongly advised.

A face covering can be as simple as a scarf or bandana to cover nose and mouth but be comfortable to breathe.  You can make a face mask and there are many designs.
