A national minute silence is due to be marked at noon on Tuesday to mark the first anniversary of the lockdown.
The town hall clock is also due to be turned yellow on Tuesday evening.
People have also been asked to ‘shine a light’ at 8pm on Tuesday evening to remember those lost or bereaved.
Council Convener Malcolm Bell commented on the last twelve months.
“Today I will be reflecting on all those who have lost loved ones during the past exceptionally difficult year, whether that’s from Covid or any other cause.
“The response to the pandemic has meant that many things we normally take for granted in our society, like comforting the dying or those bereaved, has not been possible.
“I guess everyone has lost something important to them this year and now is an appropriate moment to pause and reflect, as well as look forward.”
It comes as MP Alistair Carmichael has insisted lockdowns should not become “the new normal”.
“None of us could have imagined when emergency legislation was brought in that the restrictions envisaged would last for over a year,” he said.
“When the Coronavirus Act was passed we had no idea of the course the pandemic would take. Now that we know more, I have been working with campaign groups to repeal and replace the Coronavirus Act so that our civil liberties are better protected, even while we continue to work to reduce the spread of the virus.
“We accepted pandemic restrictions in the past year but we should not allow lockdowns to become the new normal.”
