Nicola Sturgeon outlines third phase of roadmap out of lockdown for Scotland

Scotland will move to the third phase of its four-step plan to ease out of lockdown, First Minister Nicola Sturgeon has told the Scottish Parliament.

Up to 15 people from five different households will be allowed to meet outdoors in Scotland from Friday, the First Minister said, as long as social distancing is adhered to.

A maximum of eight people from three different households will also now be able to meet indoors, Nicola Sturgeon said.

She said people should “savour” the moments including the “first-non-amateur haircut in months”, but warned this was a “moment of real danger”.
