Scotland is to move to level zero of Covid restrictions on 19th July but mandatory use of face coverings is to remain in place for “some time”.  The new level was announced by First Minister Nicola Sturgeon today.  She said there will still have to be measures in place due to the levels of the Delta Covid variant.

Here is a breakdown of the new level.

Indoor Socialising

Maximum 10 people from up to 4 households may socialise indoors
in a public place. Maximum of 8 people from up to 4 households may socialise in a private dwelling.

Outdoor Socialising

Maximum of 15 people from up to 15 households
Under 12s do not count towards restricted numbers or households outdoors

Travel and Transport

Active travel (walk, run, cycle, wheel) where possible Avoid car sharing with people outside
extended household wherever possible

Face coverings compulsory on public transport


Local licensing laws apply
Indoors (10/4) or outdoors (15/15) socialising rules apply

Hospital and care home visits

Open subject to local health protection advice

Weddings and Funerals

Weddings/Civil Partnerships – 200
Funerals – 200
Post-funeral/wedding receptions permitted – maximum 200
(alcohol permitted)

The move to level zero means more people will be allowed to meet indoors and attend weddings and funerals.

Limits on outdoor meetings are to be maintained, and the return of workers to offices is to be delayed.

Fully-vaccinated people returning from amber list countries will not need to self-isolate as of Monday as long as they take a test after arrival.
