COVID-19 outbreak: Local tasks will resume from 11th April. We will be adding tasks on a rolling basis; please keep checking the task list page for updates.
On 2021-03-16 the Scottish Government released a timetable for easing the coronavirus restrictions which sets dates for the easing of various restrictions in Scotland. Tasks in the Edinburgh area will resume in April with the first task on 11th April at Granton Castle Walled Garden. Assuming no delays in the timetable we expect to restart tasks outside Edinburgh in mid May.
At present we do not have a full task programme but we hope to add more tasks in the near future.
Volunteers should ideally meet LCV on site before each task as this maintains effective social distancing. However, we believe that we can resume limited use of our minibus, with limited volunteer numbers and mitigations in place that we have developed after consulting the Scottish Government guidance for public transport operators. We have developed a policy to be followed by leaders, drivers and volunteers on safely use of the bus during the coronavirus outbreak. In addition we have updated our guidance to volunteers and guidance to task leaders.
The situation is constantly changing and LCV will continue to update our guidance as Government advice changes. We hope to see you on task soon.
