I welcome the declining number of new cases and the lower positivity rate in West Dunbartonshire, which is now lower than the Scottish average. I hope that it will not be long before that area moves from level 3 to level 2 at a future review.

However, there is a spike of cases in Helensburgh and Lomond, which is part of Argyll and Bute, and measures are being taken to control that. For my constituents, though, it remains troubling that large numbers of people are travelling across the central belt, from level 3 and level 4 areas to level 2 areas such as Helensburgh, to eat, drink and shop. What additional measures can be taken to discourage such travel between areas?
