  2. Looking at Travelling Tabby today, England’s infections are still not to be ignored, they are still quite high especially in the north! Their regions closer to Scotland are not looking great, let’s hope people do not decide to travel into Scotland with proper quarantine and vaccine being a requirement…otherwise, we will see another spike in Scotland for sure.
