The community council is developing its response to the current situation and has coordinators in different areas. We are looking for volunteers who can deliver shopping, pick up prescriptions, chat over the phone, etc .
We are also trying to identify people who are self isolating and need help. As you will be aware it is difficult to be confident everyone has got the message in an isolated rural area, so we ask that you share this with neighbours, friends, etc. This way we hope to get a message to everyone.
we ask all people who are volunteering to take heed of this information from Argyll and Bute Council

The independent consultants Taylor Nisbet say that
The survey should take no more than 15 minutes of
your time. It is open for responses until midday on Friday 5th
July, and answers will remain anonymous.
As there were a number of people unable to attend the
community consultations, we ask that you share this with members of the
community so we can get as many views as possible. You will also notice that
some questions are the same as you were asked at the events for this reason.
