Coronavirus in Scotland: Activities reopens.

Temperature check of staff at pub

Scotland has begun its most significant relaxation of coronavirus measures since the country went into lockdown in March.

Hairdressers and barbers, bars and restaurants, cinemas, tourist attractions, places of worship and childcare settings can now all reopen.

Nicola Sturgeon said it is “the biggest step so far” in exiting lockdown.

But she warned she would “not hesitate” to close bars and restaurants again if the coronavirus starts to spread.

The reopening of indoor spaces requires anti-virus precautions to be in place and all customers will be asked to provide their name and a phone number, as part of the NHS Test and Protect scheme.

The first minister warned it was now more important than ever to stick to public health measures.

She said: “If these rules are not respected and the virus spreads again then I am afraid I am going to be standing here in a few weeks’ time saying we’re shutting pubs and restaurants again.”
