COVID-19 outbreak: On 2021-05-11 the Scottish Government released an update to the Coronavirus restrictions in force. The relaxation of restrictions is proceeding according to plan and indicates the general level of risk is acceptable. Our tasks in the Edinburgh area resumed in April and we are undertaking tasks elsewhere as well.
Therefore our task programme to the end of June will continue. Hope to see you on task soon.
The LCV trustees' view is that LCV, a registered charity provides "voluntary and charitable services" and "an organised [outdoor] activity". These activities are expressly permitted in the relevant legislation. We may adopt other measures (e.g. restricting numbers) where it is appropriate to do so for the safety of our clients and volunteers.
On 2020-10-29 the Scottish Government the protection levels (tiers) assigned to various areas of the country as part of the strategic framework for control of coronavirus in scotland. Edinburgh and surrounding areas are in tier 3. The restrictions in tier 3 continue to allow us to run tasks outdoors.
