Announcement: Effective 'lockdown' to be introduced

Posted on 24 Mar 2020

'Lockdown' to be introduced - 23 March

This evening First Minister Nicola Sturgeon announced that new measures have been introduced in Scotland to help save lives and protect the NHS. The measures are in place with immediate effect.

From tonight the only permissible reasons to leave your home are as follows:

• To shop for basic necessities and that should be limited to once a day
• To take exercise once a day - but alone or with your own household, not in groups
• For medical reasons or to care for a vulnerable person
• To travel to essential work if that cannot be done at home. Further guidance to employers is pending.
