Phase 3 dates for lockdown ease released
The Scottish government has given “indicative dates” for when phase 3 of lockdown easing can be implemented, subject to virus control. The news that beer gardens can open has certainly been appreciated given the weather.
We intend that pubs and restaurants will open indoors from the 15th of July, but on a limited basis initially and subject to a number of conditions. Detailed guidance will be issued as soon as possible.
