On 2021-01-20 the Scottish Government updated the protection levels (tiers) assigned to various areas of the country as part of the strategic framework for control of coronavirus in Scotland. As parts of efforts to suppress the new faster-spreading coronavirus strain, the whole of mainland scotland including Edinburgh has been placed remain in extended Tier 4 measures. While the restrictions in both tier 3 and tier 4 continue to allow us to run tasks outdoors, the LCV trustees feel that in light of the rapidly changing situation and the express guidance to reduce contact we cannot in good conscience run tasks.
