  • The Telegraph published this video item, entitled “In full: Nicola Sturgeon confirms coronavirus restrictions are to ease in Scotland” – below is their description.

    Scotland will move to Level 0 on July 19 as planned, Nicola Sturgeon has said, but mitigations such as mandatory face coverings will remain in place.

    Speaking during a virtual meeting of the Scottish Parliament, the First Minister said lifting certain mitigations would “put all of us at greater risk”, as some measures are relaxed.

    “So while Scotland will move to Level 0 from next Monday, we will do so with certain modifications to our indicative plans,” she said.

    “This is intended to ensure that our pace of easing restrictions is sensible in light of the challenge we continue to face from the Delta variant.

    “And I will confirm that certain mitigations – such as the mandatory wearing of face coverings – will remain in place, not just now but, in all likelihood, for some time to come.

    “Measures like the continued wearing of face coverings are important, not just to give added protection to the population as a whole, but also to give protection and assurance to those amongst us who are particularly vulnerable and previously had to shield.”
