Covid-19 Phase 3 Easing

14th July 2020

The Scottish Government recently published its plans for Phase 3 of easing the Covid-19 lockdown in Scotland. This means that the following changes are now taking place:

Since Friday 10 July face covering have been mandatory in shops

On Monday 13 July shopping centres were able to reopen

On Wednesday 14 July hairdressers, bars, restaurants and cinemas will reopen

On Thursday 15 July places of worship will be able to resume services

From Wednesday 22 July personal retail services such as beauticians and nail salons will reopen

As these services reopen we must remember that the risk of infection increases and so the following guidelines must still be followed:

Wear face coverings in enclosed spaces

Avoid crowded places

Clean your hands and surfaces regularly

Maintain two-metre (six feet) social distancing

Self-isolate and book a test if you develop coronavirus symptoms
