Isles MP Angus MacNeil has welcomed the Scottish Government’s route map to easing lockdown which aims to move into Phase 1 on 28th May.
Commenting Angus MacNeil MP said:
“This route map to easing the lockdown is good news and I am sure will be welcomed by many.
“The unpredictable nature of coronavirus makes it difficult to set exact timescales and we must take gradual steps to ensure the virus is kept under control.
“It is important to remember that we remain in lockdown and restrictions will not change before the 28th May.”
“Meanwhile together with Orkney Council Leader James Stockan we have been having exploratory discussions to develop testing with companies who might be able to offer cheaper and quicker testing. This would ensure Covid-19 is not in our communities and that it is kept at bay, which would give further confidence after lockdown is eased.”
