    Levels poster

    East Lothian Council says it is "disappointed" the area is moving back into Covid protection level three from Friday.

    Depute Leader Norman Hampshire said: "It is very disappointing news for the residents and businesses of East Lothian but sadly understandable due to the high infection rates in the county.''

    He added: ''In recent weeks East Lothian has gone from the lowest transmission rates in the Lothians to one of the highest and placing the county into level three aims to tackle and reduce further infection rates.”

    He is urging locals not to lower their guard and continue to follow the advice to help prevent the spread of infection.
