I’m doing okay, thanks for asking @RegalCharm
. I think the country is doing as well as can be expected given the circumstances; time will tell though.
As of today, Scotland has 322 cases and 6 deaths, the UK 2692 cases and 144 deaths.
There’s 23 in my area. The largest number is in Glasgow, while the smaller islands off the west coast and north are still free of the virus. Except for the Shetland islands, which have a high number of cases.
Our schools are now closed and exams cancelled. They probably won’t open again until mid-August when students should return from their summer holidays. Children of key workers or vulnerable children will still attend.
The Government will cover the majority of employees’ wages to protect their jobs.
Those off sick will get Sick Leave pay from the first day.
Restaurants, clubs and other similar venues have been told to close as the Government didn’t believe that people, especially the young, were taking the virus seriously.
Supermarkets are hiring thousands of permanent and temporary staff to help with demand.
