COVID: New Scottish Virus Restrictions To Be Announced

New restrictions aimed at slowing a surge in coronavirus cases are to be announced by Scotland’s first minister.

Nicola Sturgeon has already stressed the new rules will not signal a return to full lockdown, even for a short period of time.

But there has been speculation travel restrictions could be imposed in areas with higher levels of the virus.

And some pubs, restaurants and other venues could see tighter controls – or even temporary closure.

Ms Sturgeon will confirm the new measures in a speech to the Scottish Parliament at about 14:50 BST.

Education Secretary John Swinney will also update MSPs later in the day on plans for school exams in Scotland next year.
