Stop GlasGLOW during COVID
We call on Itison as a responsible company, and Glasgow City Council to stop the GlasGLOW event taking place in the Botanic Gardens during COVID. The rate of Covid is very high in Glasgow and running an event which attracts 1000s of people to the West end is totally wrong given the current restrictions which we are living with.
The event appears to contradict the Scottish Government guidelines on not holding outdoor events, limiting travel on public transport to essential journeys, and not having food and drink on offer after 6pm, which ITISON's event does.
We are not supposed to move around Tier 3 areas unless it's for the work, caring duties or educational reasons.
And with children being told not to go guising, it seems really odd that its then ok to take them to GlasGLOW,
We can't understand why, despite these rules being in place, it is possible for the event to be taking place at all. The current restrictions are there to protect people's health and the current situation is very fragile.
GlasGLOW just feels wrong when so many people and businesses are making such effort to stick to the rules.
So - While people in the west end love having visitors usually - this is not the time. Please don't come. be a superhero ...
Stay at home,
Don't Spread COVID
Protect our families.
