Scotland moves to Level 0 from 19 July

16, July 2021

Nicola Sturgeon has confirmed that all of Scotland will move into Level 0 from 19 July, the lowest level of restrictions since the beginning of the pandemic. 

This means that as of next Monday (19th), the number of people who can meet indoors will rise to eight people from four households, with ten people from four households able to meet in an indoor public place such as a pub.

Additionally, hospitality businesses will be able to open until midnight, and soft play centres in areas moving from Level 2 will also be able to reopen.

However, the Scottish First Minister has called on businesses to allow employees to continue to work from home where possible until 9 August to “reduce the extent to which people are meeting up in enclosed environments or travelling together”.

Face masks will also be required to be worn in indoor settings, and nightclubs and other adult entertainment venues will remain closed.
