Lockdown – Change

Nicola Sturgeon says people will now be permitted to exercise outdoors more than once a day, but must still stay relatively close to home, and maintain a 2m distance from people from other households.
 
The first minister stresses this change does not extend to outdoor activities such as sunbathing, picnics or BBQs, and is “not a licence to start meeting up in groups, at the park or the beach”.
 
“That really does risk spreading this virus and could potentially force us to re-introduce stricter guidelines, or toughen up the regulations and penalties in future,” she adds.
The first minister stresses the rest of the lockdown restrictions remain – for now – the same.
