    Dumfries and Galloway Council leader Elaine Murray says a recent rise in cases "could easily" have seen the region put in Level 3 rather than Level 2.

    She says everyone has a part to play now to reduce the spread of the virus and try to reach Level 1 restrictions.

    “We’re all fed up having to do this, but for the sake of our NHS, our vulnerable residents and our businesses we need to make that extra effort," she says.

    The chairman of the region’s health board, Nick Morris, adds: “We suppressed the virus before, and we know we can do it again.”
